Tree Removal to Impact Traffic at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and 3rd St

A tree removal project will require temporary lane closures at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and 3rd Street from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday, March 13th.

Access will be maintained as much as possible to homes and businesses in the project area. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

Because of heavy traffic volume, 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.

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 Street Maintenance Supervisor Jay Kendall at 509-576-6443.
