The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will improving access into Union Gap with the construction of a full interchange with additional ramps. This will allow traffic on eastbound I-82 to access south Main Street and drivers will be able to travel west on I-82 from south Union Gap. Currently, south Union Gap only has an eastbound on-ramp to I-82 and a westbound off-ramp to Main Street.


Construction will start early next month and should be completed in the fall.
Throughout the summer, travelers will experience detours, lane shifts and occasional lane and ramp closures. Message boards along the highway will notify travelers in an advance of traffic revisions. During construction, drivers will be able to access businesses and homes including Fullbright Park and Leisure Hill Drive.
