With all the talk about fixing the country’s long-neglected infrastructure, it seems worth noting the completion of a local infrastructure project, the Renslow Trestle near Kittitas. It’s one of those relatively modest undertakings that a lot of people are apt to shrug off. But its benefits will be significant and long-lasting — and not just to a few hardcore outdoor enthusiasts.
The two-year project came to about $800,000 and was partly covered by a grant from the Washington Wildlife & Recreation Coalition.
Maintaining the country’s basic framework adds up to better quality of life, public safety, wide-open avenues to commerce — and great local getaways like the Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail.
