Othello was chosen as one of six cities in Adams and Grant counties to receive a portion of $3.7 million in state grant funds for preservation and reconstruction of key streets within their communities. The City of Othello was awarded more than $2 million from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board to reconstruct 14th Avenue from Cemetery Road to Highway 26 and provide new paving in multiple locations around the city. The legislature created the TIB to make and manage state investment in quality local transportation projects. Funding is awarded on a competitive basis using rating criteria established by the board and usually requires local financial participation.
