Work Hours Changing for Nob Hill Project

A grind and overlay project on Nob Hill Boulevard between 13th Avenue and 29th Avenue will no longer require overnight closures.

The City of Yakima Public Works Department announced today, Monday, that work hours for the resurfacing project have changed from overnight to daytime.

As a result, drivers can anticipate intermittent lane closures eastbound or westbound in the 16-block project work area rather than a complete closure of Nob Hill Boulevard.

The project began June 26th and is expected to last until mid-October. Access to properties in the project area will be maintained as best as possible.

In recent weeks the project had required overnight closures on Nob Hill between 13th and 29th, with additional overnight closures anticipated this week prior to today’s announcement.

“We appreciate the community’s patience during this work to improve a significant stretch of Nob Hill Boulevard,” said Acting Construction Supervisor Dana Kallevig.

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

Drivers are reminded the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour. 

During the project, traffic delays in the area are likely to occur. Drivers should use alternate routes until project completion.
