Road and signal work continue in the city of Yakima as crews take advantage of the great weather to complete a upgrade and repair work. The work continues this week with a pavement markings painting project that will impact traffic on a section of Yakima Avenue for most of each morning on Monday, August 8th, and Tuesday, August 9th.

Be prepared for slowdowns if you travel in the area

City crews say as a result of the project, Yakima Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 7th Avenue to 8th Street. The work happens from of 5:00 am to 11:00 am both days. 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 the project is completed. 

Access to businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible. 

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

For additional information about this project, contact City of Yakima Traffic Supervisor Dan Nickoloff at 509-576-6746.
