Project to Close Section of N. 6th Avenue

North 6th Avenue will be closed to traffic tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 7th, between I Street and River Road.

The closure will be in effect from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Wednesday.

A detour along North 16th Avenue will be in effect during the project work hours.

The City of Yakima is assisting with the road closure as Columbia Basin Railroad will be conducting work in the area.

Drivers are reminded the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour. 

Access to homes and 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.
