Sewer Line Project to Impact Traffic on N. 16th Ave.

A project to repair an aging sewer line will impact traffic on a section of North 16th Avenue next week.

Traffic on North 16th Avenue will be limited to one lane in each direction between Jerome Avenue and Cherry Avenue starting Monday, January 17th, through Wednesday, January 19th. Traffic restrictions will be in place during project work hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm each day.

The general contractor for the project is Hurst Construction, LLC, which is based in Wenatchee.

Drivers are reminded that 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.

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible.

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