Making our city beautiful is the job of city teams. They are not only in charge of repairing the streets and signals of the city, but also of making the city welcoming. As a result, a section of North 1st The street will be one lane in each direction on Thursday, July 21stfor a beautification project.
Flower beds will look great for visitors entering the city
City crews will work in flowerbeds along North 1st Street between the north end of the I-82 interchange and I Street. A city press release says traffic restrictions will be in place during the project’s scheduled working hours of 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Due to the high volume of traffic, motorists can expect delays in the project area. Drivers should use alternate routes where possible until work is complete.
Be careful whenever driving around work areas
Drivers are reminded that the speed limit in all traffic-related work zones in the City of Yakima is 20 miles per hour.
As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily depending on weather conditions, equipment failures and emergencies.
For more information on the project, contact Acting Street Maintenance Supervisor Jay Kendall at 509-576-6443.
