Water Line Work to Restrict Traffic, Require Temporary Water Outage on S. 6th St.

Water line work will result in traffic restrictions on South 6th Street between Central Avenue and La Salle Street starting Wednesday, October 19th, through Friday, October 21st.

Work on the project will begin at around 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm all three days.

City of Yakima water customers in the project area can expect water outages during project work hours.

Traffic will be limited to one lane in the project area during scheduled work hours. Due to heavy traffic volumes on South 6th Street, drivers can expect delays. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

Drivers are reminded 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.
