Road Improvement Project on 32nd Avenue to Continue to Impact Traffic

A road improvement project will continue to impact traffic along several blocks of 32nd Avenue from Monday, August 8th through Thursday, August 11th.

Originally begun on August 1st, the project is taking place on 32nd Avenue between Tieton Drive and Arlington Street and involves removing old and deteriorated asphalt and repaving that section of the street.

Work on the project will continue to take place between 6:00 am and 3:30 pm each day from August 8th through August 11th. While the project is underway, the section of 32nd Avenue between Tieton Drive and Arlington Street will be closed to traffic.  Detour routes around the project area will be available and will be marked with appropriate signage.

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 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.
