Tree Trimming on Washington Avenue to Affect Drivers

Tree trimming along a one-block section of Washington Avenue will impact traffic for about two hours on Wednesday, February 15th.

City of Yakima crews will be cutting back branches on trees in the 2700 block of Washington Avenue to improve driver and pedestrian safety in the area from 1:00 pm until about 3:00 pm on February 15th.  Westbound traffic along that section of Washington will be reduced to one lane while the work is ongoing.

Flaggers will be in place to reroute drivers away from the area where tree trimming operations will be underway.

Access to homes and businesses in the area will be maintained and traffic will be allowed through the project area when 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.
