Washington Avenue in Yakima Closed for Mexican President's Visit
YAKIMA, Wa. - The Yakima Police Department has announced that Washington Ave in Yakima will be closed most of Wednesday for the visit of Mexican President Vicente Fox. Both eastbound and westbound traffic will be stopped from late morning until the conclusion of President Fox's visit, which is estimated to be around 3:30pm.
Also, it was previously announced that a location near 28th and Washington would be available for use by persons wishing to protest President Fox's visit. Because of space concerns, and because of the proximity of businesses to that location, the 28th Ave site has been changed.
Persons who arrive at the 28th Ave site wishing to protest will be directed to the NW corner of 40th and Washington.
