Project to Impact Traffic at 17th Avenue and Summitview Avenue

A project to grind and overlay the intersection of 17th Avenue and Summitview Avenue will impact traffic much of tomorrow, Tuesday, June 28th.

During the project work hours of 6:00 am to 4:00 pm, eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane at the intersection. There will be no lane reductions for westbound traffic.

Flaggers will be on site to assist drivers through the intersection.

Access will be maintained as much as possible to homes and businesses in the project area. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

Because of heavy traffic volume, drivers can expect delays in the project area. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed. 

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

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

For more information about the project, contact Acting Street Maintenance Supervisor Jay Kendall at 509-575-6443.
