Beach Overcrossing ~ As of October 2006, the Richland Washington area Beach Overcrossing project is well underway. The existing timber bridge is being replaced with reinforced concrete through-girder bridge. Also being negotiated is a temporary construction easement, with sharing of costs for the project with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company (BNSF). The Overcrossing was originally constructed in 1923, to be rebuilt in 1956. At present it is the sole access over railway tracks to 27th Avenue. However, as time has passed, the bridge has weathered, and with the influx of residents to the Richland Wa region, it is vital that reconstruction take place.

When one speaks of Richland and its must see sights, one of the first institutions to strike is the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center (popularly termed The Reach).

There is a mystery in the mountains that can be viewed in the Richland Washington area. The historians Gary Lentz and Dave Nicandri, in collaboration with Rob Stratton a surveyor, have collaborated to find an answer to the intriguing mystery of the Lewis and Clark story in Washington: Who saw the conical mountain bearing southwest? This question appears to be of some importance to historians, who have pursued documents to determine the facts; Clark wrote about the mountain in his diary; he appear to have time to write about it; and he was a healthy and fit man to be able to visit the mountain. This has begged the question: Why didn’t Clark mention that he climbed the mountain? It is possible that Captain Meriwether Lewis saw the mountain first. Although he has not made a journal entry o...

The cost of living in a particular real estate area can dramatically affect a decision to purchase a home. It is clear the cost of living varies diversely across suburbs and neighborhoods, and between cities and towns. Many factors effect living costs, the main one being geographical location – such as rural, urban or metropolitan areas.  Wikipedia writes: "A cost-of-living index measures the cost of maintaining a certain standard of living over time. Price indexes, such as the United States Consumer Price Index, use cost-of-living as their conceptual basis." The cost-of-living index has been developed to determine the minimum costs in North America to maintain a household in terms of sustenance and their income purchasing power. To work out the likely cost of living in an area you need...

Tri-Cities Named Top Engineer/Scientist Haven The Tri-Cities area of southeastern Washington has long been a prime example of a fast growing, modern, attractive area and it seems that engineers and scientists can particularly feel at home amidst the growth. The labor force in an area is of course a great indication of the kind of economic vitality and education opportunities the area might have and Richland, Kennewick and Pasco can be proud as they have been named the top metro area for scientists and engineers in the United States by Expansion Management. That magazine put out a study called the Knowledge Worker Quotient, an annual exercise for the magazine that ranks metro areas around the United States in terms of their ability to retain and provide new companies with a sophisticated...
