Crews from the City of Yakima will be working on making improvements to parts of the City’s stormwater drainage system that may impact traffic during the day in two parts of Yakima between Tuesday, September 30th and Thursday, October 2nd.
Crews will be working off the shoulder in and around the 300 block of Chalmers Road, which is near Sarg Hubbard Park, from September 30th through October 1st. Minimal impact to traffic is expected to occur because of the project, but drivers are encouraged to exercise increased caution in the area and be on the lookout for crew members. Work will occur from 7:00 am until 5:30 pm each day of the project.
Crews will also be working off the shoulder in and around the 4600 block of Washington Avenue, which is south of Randall Park, from September 30th through October 2nd. Eastbound traffic on Washington Avenue in the project area may periodically be restricted to one lane while the project is underway. Work will occur from 7:00 am until 5:30 pm each day of the project.
While local access will be maintained during the projects, traffic delays in the project areas may occur. Drivers may prefer to use alternate routes until the projects are completed.
As always, the schedule for these types of a projects is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
