The City of Pasco, along with the Downtown Pasco Development Authority (DPDA), will be hosting an Open House for the proposed Lewis Street Overpass on Tuesday, October 9, from 4pm to 7pm at the DPDA at 403 W. Lewis Street (the US Post Office Building) in Downtown Pasco.
The City of Pasco is currently designing an overpass across the BNSF Railway railroad tracks to replace the Lewis Street undercrossing, built in 1937. The bridge will connect Lewis Street from 2nd Avenue to Oregon Avenue (SR-397) and will include one travel lane in each direction, and a bike lane and sidewalk on both sides. Additionally, roadway improvements will be made on the blocks between Tacoma and 2nd Avenues and Clark and Lewis Streets on the west side of the railroad tracks. This project will enhance safety, connectivity, and economic possibility in the area. To learn more, ask questions, and share input, please join the project team on October 9. No formal presentation will be made.
More information about this project can be found at www.pasco-wa.gov/lewisstreet.
The City of Pasco strives to continue improving the quality of life in the community.
