Repaving Project to Close Englewood Avenue

A repaving project will close a portion of Englewood Avenue this week.

Englewood will be closed in both directions from 44th Avenue to 48th Avenue from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm starting Wednesday morning, October 10th, and continuing through the end of this week.

The project will also involve removing the old road bed, prior to repaving the roadway. 

Traffic restrictions will be in place while the project is underway, and a detour will be posted. 

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related works 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 homes and 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.
