Traffic Signal Upgrade to Impact Yakima Avenue and 7th Avenue

A traffic signal upgrade will impact the intersection of Yakima Avenue and 7th Avenue tomorrow, Wednesday, September 7th.

Crews will be upgrading the traffic signal heads at the intersection from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm this Wednesday. The traffic signal will not be in operation during the work hours. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction with stop signs at the 4-way stop.

Drivers are reminded 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.

This is last in a series of 11 traffic signal upgrades the City is providing for intersections along Yakima Avenue this summer. The improvements include upgrading to larger, more efficient 12-inch LED signal heads.
