N. 16th Ave Sewer Line Project Extended Through Jan. 21st

A project to repair an aging sewer line will impact traffic on a section of North 16th Avenue through this Friday, January 21st.

Traffic on North 16th Avenue is limited to one lane in each direction between Jerome Avenue and Cherry Avenue for the project. Work began Monday, January 17th, and was originally expected to conclude tomorrow, Wednesday.

Traffic restrictions are in place during project work hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm each day.

The general contractor for the project is Hurst Construction, LLC, which is based in Wenatchee.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work 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 project completion.

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible.

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