Kennewick Things to Do

    Nine Canyon wind farm project

    by yursparky Written Jul 22, 2007

    One thing that stands out in the Tri-cities area are the wind turbines on the hills to the south. Well, there actually is road you can take that leads you right to the "windmills". There are dozens of these turbines between Tri-cities and Walla Walla. The largest publicly owned wind farm in the country.

Kennewick Warnings and Dangers

  • Passive Aggressive Drivers

    by jke310 Written Jun 12, 2008

    Many of the roads in Kennewick are two lanes with a center turn lane. Many of the drivers in Kennewick use this design as an opportunity to impede other drivers; they want to drive your car and their's too. It's common for these drivers to drive 5-10 mph below the posted speed limit, come to almost a complete stop in the middle of the lane while making a turn, block drivers from going around them where there are four lanes, and come to a complete stop at roundabouts and wait for someone on the far side to completely clear the circle before entering it themselves. Showing any sign of impatience only encourages them, and the city supports it to restrict traffic flow.

    A concurrent problem is drivers from Oregon, only 30 miles south of Kennewick, who come up to shop tax-free in better stores than are available there. They're even slower on the secondary roads, but they speed on the highways. Fortunately, they're somewhat less passive aggressive.
