Roadwork to Close Section of Chestnut on April 6th

Roadwork will result in the closure of a section of Chestnut Avenue for most of the day on Thursday, April 6th.

City of Yakima Streets Division crews will be cutting out sections of roadway and prepping areas within a one-block section of Chestnut in advance of a road resurfacing project.  While the work is underway, the section of Chestnut between 44th Avenue and 45th Avenue will be closed to through traffic.  Work on the project will take place between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm on April 6th.  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.
