Crews from the City of Yakima will be installing approximately 80 lighted holiday decorations in Downtown Yakima on Tuesday morning, December 3rd.
Traffic will be restricted at times to a single lane to permit City trucks and equipment access to overhead street light and utility poles during the installation. The restrictions will only impact traffic in the immediate area where crews are working.
Decorations will be installed along the south side of Yakima Avenue and continue eastward. Crews will also install decorations on the north side of Yakima Avenue near the Yakima Convention Center and continue west to 1st Street. Decorations will also be hung along 1st Street between Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Walnut Avenue. The work is expected to be completed by noon on Wednesday, December 4th.
As always, schedules for these types of projects are subject to change because of weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
For additional information about the holiday decoration installation process, please contact Yakima Senior Traffic Systems Technician Dan Nickoloff at 576-6746.
