Road work on Lincoln Avenue between 58th Avenue and 60th Avenue has closed that portion of Lincoln Avenue until Wednesday April 10. While the project is underway, only local traffic will be allowed on Lincoln between 58th Avenue and 60th Avenue.
A news release from the city of Yakima explains.

"The section of Lincoln between 58th Avenue and 60th Avenue is severely cracked.  As part of the project, City crews will remove the existing asphalt and road bed, reconstruct the base, and place new hot mix asphalt to provide a more durable driving surface. The project also includes laying over 700 linear feet of storm drain pipe and installing several manholes and storm drains.

Drivers can expect delays in the project area. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed."
