Water service repairs will disrupt traffic on a portion of West Washington Avenue starting Tuesday, April 18th through Friday, April 21st. Repair hours will be from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm each day until the project is completed.
Eastbound and westbound traffic on Washington Avenue between South 24th Avenue and South 40th Avenue will be restricted to one lane in each direction while the project is underway. Traffic will channeled through the construction zone.
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 works zones within 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.
As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
