Paving Project to Impact Traffic on I Street

A paving project will result in the closure of a section of I Street for part of the day on Friday, May 11th.

As a result of the project, I Street between 1st Street and 1st Avenue will be closed on May 11th from 5:30 am to about 3:30 pm.  Detour routes will be in place to allow drivers to avoid the project area.

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 Construction Supervisor Bruce Floyd at 728-3457.
