Crosswalk Installation at 40th Avenue and Fruitvale to Affect Drivers

Installation of a crosswalk will impact traffic at the 40th Avenue and Fruitvale Boulevard intersection for most of the morning on Sunday, May 13th.

City of Yakima crews will be installing a crosswalk at the 40th and Fruitvale intersection from 6:00 am until about 11:00 am on May 13th.  While the project is underway, traffic through the intersection will be periodically disrupted.  Flaggers will be on site to help drivers navigate through the project area.  Drivers should be especially attentive while traveling through the project area.

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

During the project, traffic delays in the area are likely to occur.  Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the project is completed.

Access to homes and businesses in the area will be maintained as best as possible.

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

For more information about this project, contact Streets & Traffic Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
