Ribbon Cutting

After years planning and months of construction, city leaders in Pasco celebrate the opening of the newly improved 4th Avenue corridor.

This morning, city employees cut the ribbon on the renovated road between Sylvester and Court streets.

The project is expected to increase safety in the area, as two fatal accidents have happened in the corridor in the last decade.

Crews have built a round-a-bout to slow traffic down.

They have also cut the number of lanes to just one in each direction.

City crews say reducing the number of lanes will increase pedestrian safety.
