Train Tracks Removal to Impact Traffic on South 1st Street

Removal of deactivated train tracks will result in daytime lane restrictions along a portion of South 1st Street on Thursday, June 6th.

While the project is underway, South 1st Street between Pacific Avenue and Arlington Street will experience periodic lane restrictions, but traffic will be allowed through the project area.  Work on the project will take place from 6:00 am to 4:00 pm on June 6th.    

Drivers can expect delays in the project area. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

Access to businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area.

The project may cause interruptions in scheduled refuse collection. Contact the City of Yakima Refuse Division at 575-6005 for more information.

As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.

For more information about the project, contact Streets and Traffic Operations Manager Joe Rosenlund at 509-576-6430.
