Projects to Close Section of 48th Avenue

A portion of 48th Avenue will be closed during a road rebuild and paving project, as well as a water main line installation.

The projects will result in the closure of 48th Avenue from Nob Hill Boulevard to Tieton Drive from Monday, June 17th through Friday, July 12th. The closure will be in effect while work is taking place from 6:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

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.

Access to businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area.

The project may cause interruptions in scheduled refuse collection. Contact the City of Yakima Refuse Division at 575-6005 for more information.

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