Tree Removal to Restrict Traffic on East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard

A tree removal project will impact traffic on a section of East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard tomorrow, Wednesday, August 21st, and Thursday, August 22nd.

Traffic on East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will be restricted to one lane from Naches Avenue to 6th Street while the project is underway. Work is expected to begin at 7:00 am and end at 3:30 pm both days.

Access to homes and businesses in the area will be maintained as best as possible.

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 dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
