Two Busy Roads Shut Down For Repairs

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- On Tuesday, the city of Yakima is starting another phase of the Grind and Overlay project.

Crews are working on repaving the section of road here on Tieton between 40th and 16th Avenue.

The intersection of 40th Avenue and Tieton was closed to through traffic until around mid-morning Tuesday for a complete replacement of the asphalt.

This caused a short delay for drivers in the area and people getting to Eisenhower High School where there was little to no access to the East side of the school's parking lot.

40th Avenue between Tieton and Nob Hill Boulevard will be restricted to one lane in each direction for road resurfacing starting Tuesday night.

Across town, drivers in Yakima can expect traffic delays after the city shut down another busy street for annual maintenance.

Crews are working to resurface 66th Avenue between Englewood avenue and Scenic Drive.

The section of road will be closed to through traffic from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. until Thursday.

Crews said traffic delays will happen, but detours will be made for people who need to get around the road construction.

The Grind and Overlay project is costing the city about $5 million.

    WASHINGTON: It's barely pumpkin latte season and already signs are up advertising *flu* shots! One vaccine that's been off the market for a couple years is back this year. Two years ago the nasal spray vaccine was taken off the market because the Center for Disease Control said it was no longer effective for that particular flu season. For those who tend to get a little needle frantic, the CDC now says this year's nasal spray vaccine should be effective for this year's flu strain. I...More >>
