Yakima city crews continue with summer road and signal work. City officials say water line work will result in the closure of Powerhouse Road between Englewood Avenue and North 26th Avenue starting Wednesday, July 13th through Friday, July 15th. Work on the project will begin at 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm each day.

You might want to think about a different route to wherever you are going

Due to heavy traffic volumes on Powerhouse Road, drivers can expect delays and should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed. Detours around the construction site will be available. City officials say the work may cause interruptions in scheduled garbage service. Contact the City of Yakima Refuse Division at 509-575-6005 for more information. Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

Also work continues on the Nelson Dam removal and replacement project and will result in temporary road closures over the next few weeks.
