Manhole Cover Replacement on Nob Hill to Impact Traffic

A project to replace a manhole cover on Lincoln Avenue between 39th Avenue and 40th Avenue will impact traffic in the morning on Wednesday, September 4th.    

City of Yakima Wastewater Division crews will be working on the project between 6:00 am and noon on September 4th.  As a result of the project, westbound traffic on Lincoln Avenue will be reduced to one lane in the traffic area and the southbound turn lane from Lincoln onto 40th Avenue will be closed while the project is underway.

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 if possible until the project is completed. 

Access to homes and businesses in the area will be maintained and traffic will be allowed through the project area when possible.

As always, the schedule for this type of a project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
