Union Gap unveils options to upgrade Main Street

UNION GAP, Wash. -- City leaders in Union Gap are taking the next step toward revitalizing Main Street.

Four options were unveiled today. One adds lanes, including a center turn lane on Main Street. A second would remove that center lane to add bike lanes instead. Another would take lanes away to make way for parking on Main Street. A final choice cuts lanes in favor of more sidewalk room.

Businesses around Main Street look forward to an upgrade.

"There's a strong sense of community here, but, the higher the community pride, the more people get involved," said Paul Strater, who works for the Central Washington Agricultural Museum. "The more people get involved, the more people get active."

The next step is to send these ideas to Union Gap City Council.
