Trolley Track Repair Will Impact Traffic on Portion of Yakima Avenue

Traffic on Yakima Avenue near the Yakima Avenue and 6th Avenue intersection will be impacted for most of the day on September 24th while City of Yakima Street Division crews make repairs to trolley tracks.

The project will begin at 6:00 am on Thursday, September 24th and should be completed by about 3:00 pm that same day. While the project is underway, westbound traffic on Yakima Avenue will be restricted to one lane. The outside westbound lane of Yakima Avenue will be closed at the 6th Avenue intersection until the project is finished.

Since only the inside westbound lane of Yakima Avenue will be open, drivers can expect delays in and around the project area until the work is completed. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the project is completed.

Access to businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area as necessary.

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.
