Replacement of Manhole to Impact Traffic on 72nd Avenue

A project to replace a manhole will result in traffic restrictions on a portion of 72nd Avenue for part of the day on Thursday, September 13th.

As a result of the project, southbound traffic along a section of 72nd Avenue in the 600 and 700 block portion of the street will be restricted to one lane from 9:00 am to about 1:00 pm on September 13th.

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 Wastewater Collections Supervisor Bob Brown at 406-7103.
