Utility Work To Impact Traffic At Busy Yakima Intersection

The installation of a new stormwater manhole will impact drivers at the intersection of 32nd Avenue and Summitview Avenue on Tuesday, April 14th and Wednesday, April 15th.

Westbound traffic on Summitview will be restricted to a single lane in the construction area and 32nd Avenue will be closed on the north side of the intersection during the daytime. Construction activity is scheduled to run from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm..

Drivers are urged to avoid the intersection and use alternate routes if possible. Detours will be in place for 32nd Avenue traffic and access to nearby homes and businesses in the area will be maintained as best as possible.

As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
