Tree Removal to Impact Traffic on Summitview Avenue

A tree removal project will require closing westbound traffic on a section of Summitview Avenue tomorrow, Friday, March 5th

During the project work hours of 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, Summitview Avenue will be closed westbound at 16th Avenue to Park Avenue. Eastbound traffic on Summitview Avenue will be reduced to one lane from Park Avenue to 17th Avenue.

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.

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

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