Yakima city crews are busy with a tree removal project this week that will result in the closure of the section of North 6th Street between MLK Jr. Boulevard and Lincoln Avenue. The closure will happen from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from Wednesday, February 5 through Friday, February 7. A news release says access to homes and businesses in the area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area as needed.

"Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

The project may cause interruptions in scheduled refuse collection. Contact the City of Yakima Refuse Division at 575-6005 for more information."
