Sewer Line Install to Close Section of 8th Avenue

The 1700 block of South 8th Avenue will be closed to traffic Monday, November 20th, so crews can install a new sewer service crossing.

The closure will be in effect during project work hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday. Access to all properties in the project area will be available via intersections from the north and south ends of the 1700 block of South 8th Avenue.

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

Drivers are reminded the speed limit through all traffic-related work 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 project completion.
