Water Main Repairs to Restrict Traffic on South 16th Avenue

Water main repairs will result in traffic restrictions on South 16th Avenue between Yakima Avenue and Chestnut Avenue on Thursday, April 1th, and Friday, April 2nd.  

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

Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions in the project area. Due to heavy traffic volumes on South 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 works 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.

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