Sidewalk Repair Project to Impact Traffic on 40th Avenue

A project to repair sidewalk sections will impact traffic on a portion of 40th Avenue on Thursday, August 16th.  Work on the project will take place from 6:00 am until 3:30.

As a result of the project, the outside, southbound lane of 40th Avenue between Arlington Street and Nob Hill Boulevard will be closed 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.
