RICHLAND, Wash. - Richland is hoping a federal grant will help cover the cost of re-doing a major intersection.

The city applied for a slice of 37-million dollars.

Where Highway 240 ends in Richland at Winco, 40-thousand cars pass through daily. There can be backups at the intersection to Aaron Drive, and even accidents from cars exiting the highway at different speeds.

Richland wants to change the whole thing into what's called a 'T' intersection.

If the money comes through, construction could start at the end of next year.
