Water main repairs will result in traffic restrictions on Washington Avenue between 24th Avenue and 16th Avenue from today, Wednesday, February 20th through Friday, February 22nd. Work on the project will begin at 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm each day.
Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions in the project area. Because of heavy traffic volumes on Washington 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 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.
For more information about the project, contact Water Distribution Supervisor Emilio Lopez at 575-6196.
