Curb and Gutter Replacement to Impact Traffic at Gilbert and Barge

A project to replace curb and gutter infrastructure will result in traffic restrictions at and near the intersection of Gilbert Drive and Barge Street for most of the each day from Tuesday, June 12th through Thursday, June 14th.

As a result of the project, Gilbert Drive between Summitview Avenue and Yakima Avenue will be closed to all but local traffic from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm from June 12th through June 14th.  Barge Street will also be closed to all but local traffic during those same hours on those same days from 22nd Avenue to Gilbert Drive.  If need be, the project may be extended to include several days next week.

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 until the project is completed.

Access to homes and businesses in the project 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.
