PASCO, Wash.—If you go to Columbia Basin Community College, your daily commute will soon be a little easier. A new traffic light signal will soon be installed at the intersection of Argent Road and CBC.
The project was recently approved by city council. It will cost about $275-thousand.
"I think it's a really good idea. I've seen traffic around when classes get out or specifically during lunch time," says Jonathan Watts, CBC student.
"Lots of traffic, it's impossible to get out of the gas station here without running into too many cars, too many stops," says Evan Levitt, CBC student.
Construction is expected to begin soon and wrap up in September. The City of Pasco will also be widening the road to five lanes in the near future.
