Traffic Pavement Marking Project to Impact Traffic on Fruitvale

A project involving traffic pavement marking will impact traffic in the area of the roundabout that intersects Fair Avenue and MLK, Jr. Boulevard on Tuesday, December 12th.

City of Yakima crews will be placing traffic pavement markings in the area of and near the Fair Avenue/MLK, Jr. Boulevard roundabout on December 12th.  Work on the project will take place from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm that day.

Flaggers will be on site to help direct drivers through the project 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 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 Streets and Traffic Operations Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
