Tree Trimming to Impact Traffic on 40th Avenue

A tree trimming project will restrict traffic on a section of 40th Avenue tomorrow morning, Wednesday, April 21st.

During the project work hours of 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, traffic on 40th Avenue will be restricted to one lane in each direction between Arlington Street and Nob Hill Boulevard.

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 Streets and Traffic Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
