Motorists are encouraged to avoid parts of River Rd. in Yakima for most of the day on Tuesday, October 23rd and Wednesday, October 24th as water main installation projects will be underway.

City of Yakima crews will be working on Tuesday in the 3100 block from approximately 7:00am until 3:30pm.  While the project is underway, no access will be available between the 3100 block and the 3400 block.  River Road will still be accessible between 16th and 20th Avenues.

On Wednesday, crews will be installing a water main in the 2800 block during the same hours as Tuesday with the same restrictions.

During these times, traffic delays are likely.  Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until completion.

As always, the scheduled work is subject to change daily.
