Fire hydrants get old and need to be replaced. And that's what city crews are doing Thursday and Friday. A fire hydrant replacement project will result in traffic restrictions on South 1st Street between Arlington Street and Nob Hill Boulevard from Thursday, September 20th through Friday, September 21st.  Work on the project will begin at 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm each day.

Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions in the project area. Because of heavy traffic volumes on South 1st Street, drivers can expect delays. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related works zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

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.
