Yakima city crews are busy this week with utility work. The work is resulting in traffic restrictions on South 1st Street between Chestnut Avenue and Walnut Street on Tuesday, June 27th through Friday, June 30th, 2017. 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 volume 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.
