Asphalt Work to Continue on South 1st Street

Asphalt work on South 1st Street between Walnut Street and Race Street will continue next Tuesday and Wednesday, May 30th and 31st.

Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions in the project area during scheduled work hours of 7:00 am to 3:30 pm both days. Due to heavy traffic volumes on South 1st Street, drivers can expect delays. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

The project began on Tuesday of this week, May 23rd, and was originally scheduled to conclude tomorrow, Friday. However, due to the unavailability of asphalt tomorrow the project has been extended to Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

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

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

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