Water Main Repairs to Restrict Traffic on Washington Avenue

Water main repairs will result in traffic restrictions on Washington Avenue between 24th Avenue and 16th Avenue on Friday, January 25th.  Work on the project will begin at 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm.

Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions in the project area. Because of heavy traffic volumes on Washington Avenue, motorists can expect delays. They should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

Motorists 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.

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