Water Line Work to Close a Portion of Fairbanks Avenue

Water line work will result in the closure of Fairbanks Avenue between North 37th Avenue and North 39th Avenue on Thursday, January 10th and Friday, January 11th.  Work on the project will take place from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm each day until completed.

Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed. 

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.

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

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