Removal of Debris from Wide Hollow Creek to Affect Drivers

The removal of debris from a section of Wide Hollow Creek will result in traffic impacts along a small portion of 24th Avenue for about two hours on Friday, March 24th.

Crews from the City of Yakima’s Streets Division and Wastewater Collections Division will be removing debris from Wide Hollow Creek just west of a bridge on 24th Avenue that crosses the creek from 9:00 am until about 11:00 am on March 24th.  Southbound traffic along the section of 24th Avenue near and across the bridge will be restricted to one lane while the project is underway.

Because of heavy traffic volumes, 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 works zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

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

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 or Surface Water Engineer Randy Meloy at 576-6606.
