A road repair project on Naches Avenue and Chestnut Avenue will impact traffic for most of each day from Monday, March 21st to Thursday, March 24th.
City of Yakima Streets Division crews will be crack sealing and mastic sealing the section of Naches Avenue between Yakima Avenue and Walnut Avenue and the section of Chestnut Avenue between 4th Street and 6th Street. The work will be performed from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm each day from March 21st through March 24th. While the project is underway, the section of Naches Avenue between Yakima Avenue and Walnut Avenue will be closed as will the section of Chestnut Avenue between 4th Street and 6th Street. Detour routes will be available and flaggers will be on site to help direct drivers around the project areas.
During the project, traffic delays in the areas are likely to occur. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible 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.
