Yakima city crews will be installing about 80 lighted holiday decorations in Downtown Yakima on Tuesday morning (Nov. 20).  As a result, traffic will be restricted at times to a single lane to permit city trucks and equipment access to overhead street light and utility poles during the installation. The restrictions will only affect traffic in the immediate area where crews are working.

The work will begin around 9 a.m. Tuesday along the south side of Yakima Avenue and continue eastward. Once that work is completed, crews will move to the north side of Yakima Avenue near the Yakima Convention Center and continue west to First Street. Decorations will also be hung along First Street between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Walnut Avenue. The work is expected to be completed by noon on Wednesday (Nov. 21).
