Road Repair Project to Impact Traffic on Englewood Avenue

A road repair project will impact traffic on a section of Englewood Avenue for most of the day on Thursday, August 31st.

As a result of the project, the section of Englewood Avenue between 66th Avenue and 74th Avenue will be closed on August 31st from 6:00 am to 3:30 pm.  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 around 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 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.
