Tree Stump Removal Project to Impact Traffic on 3rd Avenue

A project to grind and remove tree stumps will impact traffic on a section of 3rd Avenue for most of each day from Monday, June 12th through Thursday June 15th.

As a result of the project, the southbound, outside lane of 3rd Avenue between Peach Street and Nob Hill Boulevard will be closed each day from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm from June 12th through June 15th.  Flaggers will be on site to help drivers navigate through the work area.

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.
