Road Repair Project to Impact Traffic on Chestnut

A road repair project will impact traffic on a section of Chestnut Avenue for most of each day from Monday, June 12th through Wednesday, June 14th.

As a result of the project, the section of Chestnut between 44th Avenue and 48th Avenue will be closed each day from 6:30 am to 3:30 pm from June 12th through June 14th.  Detour routes around the project area will be available and will be marked with appropriate signage.  Flaggers will also be on site to help drivers navigate through the work 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 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.
