Stormwater Maintenance to Impact Traffic on Plath Avenue

A stormwater maintenance project will impact traffic on a section of Plath Avenue for most of the day on Thursday, March 22nd.

As a result of the project, Plath Avenue will be closed between 16th Avenue and 18th Avenue from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on March 22nd.  Traffic on 16th Avenue will not be affected by the project.

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 homes and 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 Wastewater Collections Supervisor Bob Brown at 406-7103.
