Railroad Crossing Painting Project to Impact Traffic on 20th Avenue

A railroad crossing painting project will impact traffic on a section of 20th Avenue for a few hours in the morning of Thursday, July 12th.

As a result of the project, 20th Avenue will be closed to through traffic in its northbound lane at West J Street and in its southbound lane at River Road.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

During the project, traffic delays in the area are likely to occur.  Drivers should use alternate routes until the project is completed.

Access to businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible.

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

For additional information about this project, contact Streets and Traffic Operations Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
