Utility work to restrict traffic on north 40th Avenue

Utility work to restrict traffic on north 40th Avenue

Utility work will result in traffic restrictions at the intersection of North 40th Avenue and Castlevale Road on Thursday, April 27th, 2017. Work on the project will begin at 7:00 am and last until 3:30 pm.

Because of heavy traffic volume on 40th Avenue, 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.

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.
