Sidewalk Project to Restrict Traffic on 16th Avenue

Northbound traffic on a section of 16th Avenue will be limited to one lane tomorrow, Thursday, June 17th.

City of Yakima crews will replace sidewalk on 16th Avenue, just north of Cherry Avenue. Northbound traffic on 16th Avenue will be one lane for about 200 feet, starting at Cherry Avenue, during project work hours of 6:00 am to 2:00 pm tomorrow.

Because of heavy traffic volume, drivers can expect delays in the project area.  Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed. 

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

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

Access will be maintained as much as possible to homes and businesses in the project area. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.
