Road Project at Scenic and Hilltop Intersection to Impact Traffic

A road improvement project will impact traffic at the intersection of Scenic Drive and Hilltop Way from Monday, September 19th through Wednesday, September 21st.

The project will take place within the intersection and will involve patching and paving utility cuts.

Work on the project will take place between 6:00 am and 3:30 pm from September 19th through September 21st. While the project is underway, the Scenic Drive and Hilltop Way intersection will be closed to traffic during work hours.  Detour routes around the project area will be available and will be marked with appropriate signage.  Flaggers will be on site to help drivers navigate around the project area.

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.
