Installation of a new water service will result in the closure of West J Street between 16th Avenue and 20th Avenue from Wednesday, April 24th to Thursday, April 25th. Work on the project will take place from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm every day until completed.
Due of heavy traffic volume in the area, 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 work 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.
The repairs may cause interruptions in scheduled refuse collection. Contact the City of Yakima Refuse Division at 575-6005 for more information.
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.
