Tri-Cities newest street opened yesterday connecting Highway 395 and State Route 240 with a new 5 lane road. The new street increases the connectivity between two main highways but also installed curbs, sidewalks, streetlights. It is named after Bob Olson who has served 24 years on the Benton Franklin Council of Governments and was the Chair of the Regional Service Transportation Committee according to reports.

The new street is open but is still being finished with landscaping and smaller details. The city thinks this will be a huge opportunity for economic growth in this area.
