Water Line Work to Close Section of Viola Avenue

Water line work will close a section of Viola Avenue on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 15-16.

Viola Avenue will be closed to thru traffic between South 18th Street and South 17th Street. Work on the project will start at 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm each day.

Local access to residents and businesses will be maintained. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area when necessary.

Yakima Transit Route 6 South will be adjusted to accommodate the closure.  Please see https://yakimatransit.org/ for up-to-date routes or contact Yakima Transit at 509-575-6175.
