Pavement Markings Painting Project to Impact Traffic on Yakima Avenue

A pavement markings painting project will impact traffic on a section of Yakima Avenue for most of each morning Monday, July 16th and Tuesday, July 17th.

As a result of the project, Yakima Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 7th Avenue to 8th Street.

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 the project is completed.

Access to businesses 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.
