Chip Seal Of City Streets Continues This Week
The City of Yakima Streets Division will continue its annual chip sealing program on Monday, July 23rd. Several roads in the southeast section of Yakima, including multiple side streets of Fair Avenue, along with roads in the northwest section of the city, including side streets off of 85th Avenue, will be the focus of the chip sealing program this week.
Crews will chip seal from around 6:30 am to about 3:30 pm Monday through Thursday. Drivers are encouraged to avoid work zones if possible. In order to reduce dust and to keep work crews safe, 20-mile-per-hour speed limits will be strictly enforced on the streets where chip sealing is underway. Access to homes and businesses on the roads to be chip sealed may be restricted for short durations while the work is being done.
