Project to Impact Traffic on Fruitvale Boulevard

Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction on a section of Fruitvale Boulevard tomorrow, Tuesday, March 30th, due to a crack sealing project.

The right lane in both directions will be closed on Fruitvale Boulevard between 24th Avenue and 34th Avenue during the project work hours of 9:00 am to 3:00 pm tomorrow.

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.
