Traffic Signal Work at 16th Avenue and Nob Hill to Affect Drivers

Traffic signals at the intersection of 16th Avenue and Nob Hill Boulevard will be shut down temporarily during the day on Sunday, July 31st for several hours while work is done to the signal head and wiring at that location.

City of Yakima crews will be working on the traffic signals at that intersection from 8:30 am until about 2:30 pm that day.  While the work is underway, the signals at the 16th Avenue and Nob Hill intersection won’t be working.  Traffic through the intersection will be restricted to one lane in each direction.  Temporary stop signs will also be in place at the intersection.  Drivers should be especially attentive while traveling 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 if possible until the project is completed.

Access to homes and businesses in the 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.
