Road Repair Project to Impact Traffic on 53rd Avenue

A road repair project will impact traffic on a section of 53rd Avenue for most of the day on Wednesday, May 2nd and Thursday, May 3rd.

As a result of the project, 53rd Avenue between Scenic Drive and Englewood Avenue will be closed to all traffic from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm on May 2nd and May 3rd.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work 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 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.
