Asphalt Project to Impact Traffic on South 1st Street

A section of South 1st Street will be one lane each direction tomorrow, Friday, October 7th, for an asphalt grinding project.

South 1st Street will be one lane each way between East King Street and Russell Lane during scheduled project work hours of 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. Access will be maintained for businesses and emergency vehicles.

Because of heavy traffic volume, drivers can expect delays in the project area. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed. 

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.

For more information about the project, contact Street Maintenance Supervisor Jay Kendall at 509-576-6443.
