Water line work will result in traffic restrictions at the intersection of Washington Avenue and North 16th Avenue on Tuesday, October 4th.
Work on the project will begin at 5:00 am and last until 3:30 pm. City of Yakima water customers in the project area can expect water outages during the project work hours.
Traffic will be limited to one lane in all directions in the project area. Due to heavy traffic volumes on Washington Avenue and 16th Avenue, drivers can expect delays. 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 509-575-6005 for more information.
As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
