Sidewalk Project to Impact Traffic on Walnut Avenue

A project to remove broken sidewalk sections will impact traffic on a section of Walnut Avenue for most of each day from Wednesday, March 21st to Friday, March 30th.  Work on the project will take place from 7:00 am until 3:30 pm each day from March 21st through March 30th.

As a result of the project, westbound traffic on Walnut between 2nd Street and Front Street will be restricted to one lane until the project is completed.  Flaggers will 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 businesses in the project 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.
