Crosswalk Marking Project to Impact 40th and Chestnut Traffic

A crosswalk marking project will impact traffic at the intersection of 40th Avenue and Chestnut Avenue for a few hours in the morning on Monday, April 19th.

From 9:30 am to about 11:30 am on April 19th, the northbound and southbound inside lanes of 40th Avenue at Chestnut Avenue will be closed.  The northbound and southbound outside lanes of 40th at Chestnut will remain open during the project.

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

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 Senior Systems Technician Dan Nickoloff at 576-6746.
