Utility work will result in the closure of South 2nd Street between East Walnut Street and East Chestnut Avenue from Tuesday, March 14th through Friday, March 17th. Work on the project will take place from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm each day.
Because of heavy traffic volumes, 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 works zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.
Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.
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 Water Distribution Supervisor Emilio Lopez at 575-6196.
