Project to Impact Traffic at 40th and Chestnut

Traffic will be restricted tomorrow, Thursday, at the intersection of 40th Avenue and Chestnut Avenue.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the intersection from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm tomorrow so crews can repair a concrete barrier.

Access will be maintained 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 Streets and Traffic Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
