Yakima drivers will continue to see their commutes affected by the city's summer-long road repaving project.

City crews are keeping their schedule of complete road closures overnight while daytime hours will see just periodic lane closures.

In a press release by the city Senior City Engineer Bob Desgrosellier said, "The grind and overlay process will make driving along the streets that are under construction inconvenient for a couple of weeks."
