Yakima Greenway Ext.- Yakima River Ped. Bridge

Category Overview

Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.

Project Highlights

Yakima County Public Services will use this grant to build an east-west corridor between Yakima and Terrace Heights. The County will install a concrete pedestrian bridge over the Yakima River to the north of the new east-west corridor alignment. The bridge will connect the trail system to the city’s and county’s pedestrian facilities, creating a new multiuse trail loop. It also will provide new recreational access to the Yakima River. Yakima County will contribute $2.3 million in a state appropriation and a local grant.
