Roadwork to Close Section of 86th Avenue on April 24th

Roadwork will result in the closure of a section of 86th Avenue for most of the day on Monday, April 24th.

While the work is underway, that section of 86th Avenue between Occidental Road and the 85th Avenue cutoff will be closed to traffic.  Work on the project will take place between 6:30 am and 3:00 pm on April 24th.  Detour routes around the project area will be available and will be marked with appropriate signage.  Flaggers will also be on site to help drivers navigate through the work area.

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

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