Several Road Construction Projects in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA - Construction crews are busy doing roadwork in Yakima this week.  City crews will be widening the road from two lanes to three from 74th avenue to 80th Avenue on Nob Hill Boulevard.  Drivers should expect delays from 7 am to 5 pm all this week.

And on river road a new sewer system is being put in so a large part of that road will be closed all week. This Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday River Road will be closed between 28th and 34th Avenue.  On Tuesday 20th Avenue and river road will be closed, with detours in place to Fruitvale.

And finally on Powerhouse Road will be seeing temporary lane restrictions all week long. City crews will be doing construction on the water systems there between 8 am and 5 pm.  Lane restrictions will be in place on West Powerhouse Road west of 40th Avenue.

If you plan on driving in any of these areas, be sure to plan for extra time, and drive carefully as you head through construction zones.
