Yakima city crews will be busy Wednesday with a project to replace a sewer manhole cover. The work could impact your commute to work. A press release says traffic will be impacted on a section of Nob Hill Blvd. Officials from the Yakima Wastewater Division will be working on the project from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Wednesday, March 4.
Because of the location of the work and the hours traffic could be impacted. City officials says the work will require the closures of a lanes in the area. One lane in each direction will be open during the work on West Nob Hill Boulevard between South 46th Avenue and South 48th Avenue. City officials say traffic is always busy in that area most of the day so if you drive in the area on Wednesday you should expect delays and should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed. City crews say the work could be finished before the 12:00 p.m. deadline so it's possible your commute won't see any slowdowns.

Yakima city officials say this is the time of year when road work increases and more city crews are out repairing damage from the long winter months.

"Drivers are reminded that the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the City of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be maintained as best as possible and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies."
