Road Repair to Close Section of 3rd Street

Third Street will be closed to traffic between Staff Sgt. Pendleton Way and Yakima Avenue on Wednesday and Thursday, September 23rd and September 24th, for a road repair project.

Project work hours will be 6:00 am to 4:00 pm on Wednesday and Thursday.

Because of heavy traffic volume, drivers can expect delays in the project area.  Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed. 

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.

For more information about the project, contact Streets and Traffic Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
