Road Repairs on Yakima Avenue to Impact Traffic

A road repair project along a seven-block section of Yakima Avenue will impact traffic for most of each day from Monday, May 9th through Thursday, May 12th.

City of Yakima Streets Division crews will be crack sealing and mastic sealing the section of Yakima Avenue between 1st Street and 7th Avenue from 6:00 am to 3:30 pm each day from May 9th through May 12th.  Traffic in the project area will be restricted to one lane in each direction until the road repairs are completed.  Special signage and other traffic control measures will be in place while the project is underway in order to help drivers navigate through the project area.

During the project, traffic delays in the area 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 and traffic will be allowed through the project area when 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.
