YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- You could see the Firing Center Park and Ride triple in size near Selah. It will have 69 new spaces.

The Yakima-Ellensburg Commuter stops there, along with Yakima Transit. The parking lot will also be repaved.

Most of the cost will be covered by grant money. WSDOT and Yakima County will kick in the land.

The gas station owner next door expects the new spaces will be put to good use.

"They do come into the parking lot, and they do back up and they get all frustrated," said Sam Ali. "And so, I think it's a great idea."

The spaces could be ready by the end of summer if approved by Yakima City Council.
