Lane Closures Required for Traffic Signal Replacement

Traffic at the intersection of North 40th Avenue and Powerhouse/River Road will be reduced to one lane in all directions Wednesday morning, May 29th.

Crews will upgrade the traffic signal at the intersection, replacing the traffic signal cabinet with one that has battery back-up capabilities.

Work is scheduled to begin at 6:30 am Wednesday. It is expected to be complete by no later than 9:00 am.

The traffic signal will be dark during Wednesday morning’s project work hours. It will be replaced with temporary stop signs in each direction.

Drivers are reminded 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 a project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.

Contact Traffic Operations Supervisor Dan Nickoloff at 509-576-6746 for more about the project.
