Rail Crossing Asphalt Repair to Impact Traffic on Mead Avenue

Repairs to asphalt paving near a rail crossing will result in lane restrictions along a portion of Mead Avenue for most of the morning on Thursday, June 20th.

While the project is underway, traffic on Mead Avenue between Maryland Street and Voelker Avenue will be restricted to one lane in each direction.  Work on the project will take place from 7:00 am to 11:00 am on June 20th.    

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 and homes 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.

For more information about the project, contact Streets and Traffic Operations Manager Joe Rosenlund at 509-576-6430.
