Traffic signals at the intersection of 1st Street and Nob Hill Boulevard will be shut down temporarily during the morning on Thursday, December 1st for about three hours while a traffic signal battery backup system is installed.
City of Yakima crews will be working on installing a new backup battery system to the traffic signal controller at that intersection from approximately 9:00 am until about noon on December 1st. While the work is underway, the signals at the 1st Street and Nob Hill intersection will not be working. Temporary stop signs will be in place at the intersection. Drivers should be especially attentive while traveling through the project area and extend courtesy to other drivers passing through the intersection.
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.
