Water to make beer is on the way to a future brewery in Yakima. And as a result a section of River Road will be closed to all traffic from Thursday, November 16th until Saturday, November 18th as city crews work on water and sewer main service.
City officials say about one-block section of River Road from 34th Avenue east and just south will be closed while the project is ongoing. Crews from Ken Leingang Excavating, Inc., a Yakima-based contracting firm, will be installing water and sewer service to the recently-opened Valley Brewing facility. Homes and businesses along River Road south of the closure will be able to be accessed using 16th Avenue or 20th Avenue.
