Wastewater Line Project to Impact Traffic on Portion of Fair Avenue

A wastewater line installation project will impact traffic on a section of Fair Avenue from Monday, February 24th through mid-May.

The section of Fair Avenue between Beech Street and Spruce Street will be limited to local access only from February 24th until the project is completed.  Detours will be in place to allow drivers to navigate around the project area and alternate bus routes will be in effect until the project is completed. 

The general contractor for the project is Hurst Construction, LLC, which is based in Wenatchee.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

During the project, traffic delays in the area are likely to occur. Drivers should use alternate routes until project completion.

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible.

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