Tree Removal to Impact Traffic on 40th Avenue

A tree removal project will result in traffic being reduced to one lane on a section of 40th Avenue from 8:30 am to 11:30 am on Monday, April 8th.

The northbound lanes on 40th Avenue will be reduced to one lane between Walnut Street and Chestnut Street while crews remove the tree on April 8th.

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

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 Manager Joseph Rosenlund at 509 576-6430.
