There's a new open roadway in Kennewick.

It's the Bob Olson Parkway and there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony today at 11 AM.

The Bob Olson Parkway has been opened to traffic for a few weeks ago.

It's a new five-lane road that extends from the Steptoe Street/10th Avenue Roundabout to Sherman Street and connects between highways 395 and 240.
