Tree Removal to Impact Traffic on Walnut Street

A tree removal project will close one lane on portions of Walnut Street from today, Tuesday, February 20th through Friday, February 23rd.

The curbside eastbound lane of Walnut Street will be closed from Second Street to First Street and First Street to Front Avenue. The closure is in effect from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm each day through Friday, February 23rd.

Traffic restrictions will be in place while the project is underway.

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.
