Asphalt Work to Restrict Traffic on South 1st Street

Asphalt work will result in traffic restrictions on South 1st Street between Walnut Street and Race Street starting Tuesday, May 23rd, through Friday, May 26th. Work on the project will begin at around 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm each day.  

Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions in the project area during scheduled work hours. 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.

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.

The repairs may cause interruptions in scheduled refuse collection. Contact the City of Yakima Refuse Division at 509-575-6005 for more information.

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 Water Distribution Supervisor Emilio Lopez at 509-575-6196.
