Water Service Line Install to Close a Section of North 3rd Avenue

Water service line installation will result in the closure of North 3rd Avenue between Lincoln Avenue and D Street from Monday, March 25th through Friday, March 29th.  Work on the project will begin at 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm each day.

Due of heavy traffic volumes on North 3rd Avenue, drivers can expect delays. Drivers should use alternate routes 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. For more information about the project, contact Water Distribution Supervisor Emilio Lopez at 575-6196.
