Guardrail Project to Impact Traffic on Powerhouse Road

A guardrail project will impact traffic on a section of Powerhouse Road for most of the day on Thursday, July 27th

As a result of the project, the section of Powerhouse Road between Garretson Grade and Cowiche Canyon Road will be closed to all traffic on July 27th from about 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.  Detour routes around the project area will be available and will be marked with appropriate signage.  Flaggers will also be on site to help drivers navigate around the work 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 until the project is completed.

Access to homes 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.

For additional information about this project, contact Streets and Traffic Operations Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
