Road Resurfacing Project to Impact Daytime Traffic on 66th Avenue

Annual street maintenance work by City of Yakima Streets Division crews will impact daytime traffic on 66th   Avenue between Englewood Avenue and Scenic Drive from Tuesday, September 17th through Thursday, September 19th.

That section of 66th Avenue will be closed to through traffic from 6:00 am until 4:00 pm each day on Tuesday, September 17th, Wednesday, September 18th, and Thursday, September 19th.

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.

While the project is underway, traffic delays in the project area will occur.  Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

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

For additional information about these projects, contact Streets and Traffic Operations Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
