Project to Impact Traffic at 18th Avenue and Summitview Avenue

A project to grind and overlay the intersection of 18th Avenue and Summitview Avenue will impact traffic much of tomorrow, Wednesday, June 29th.

During the project work hours of 6:00 am to 4:00 pm, eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane at the intersection. In addition, 18th Avenue will be closed to traffic from Summitview Avenue to Eleanor Street.

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.
