16th & Washington Construction taking longer than expected

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Construction on the intersection of 16th Avenue and Washington in Yakima will take longer than expected.

The city told us earlier this month the roadwork would be done by around the first week of October. Now they've moved that back to the end of October.

The city is widening the intersection and putting in new stoplights to cope with increased traffic over the past few years.

They say they're waiting for a supplier to deliver poles for the new stoplights. They say once those are in, they can move forward on construction.
