Signal Upgrades to Impact 3rd Street and Lincoln Avenue

Traffic will be restricted at the intersection of 3rd Street and Lincoln Avenue on Wednesday morning, May 5th, for traffic signal improvements.

Traffic at the intersection will be restricted to one lane in each direction during the project work hours of 8:00 am to 11:30 am this Wednesday. Temporary stop signs will be in place as the traffic signal will be off during the project work hours.

Crews will upgrade signal heads at the intersection, replacing 8-inch incandescent signal lights with all new 12-inch LED signal lights.

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.

For more information about the project, contact Streets and Traffic Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
