Yakima Drivers can expect delays on 16th Avenue Tuesday
Yakima city crews continue summer work to repair things that can't be repaired in the fall and winter months. In fact Tuesday crews are working on a water main that's resulting in traffic restrictions on South 16th Avenue between Viola Avenue and Logan Avenue. City officials says work on the project will continue until 3:30PM.
"Traffic will be limited to one lane in both directions in the project area. Due to heavy traffic volumes on South 16th Avenue, drivers can expect delays. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.
Drivers are reminded 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.
As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
For more information about the project, contact Water Distribution Supervisor Emilio Lopez at 575-6196."
