With the cold weather still hitting us, and morning commutes dealing with the possibility of slick spots, it's a good idea to have the info about the road before you go! That's why we're here, to help you out, and make sure you can get to your destination as stress free as possible. Well, make sure you plan a different route or give yourself some extra time if you frequent the area of North 56th Ave.

A City of Yakima press release came out Wednesday morning (February 10th) letting us know about the work that will be done tomorrow. The press release is as follows:


A tree removal project will require closing North 56th Avenue to traffic tomorrow morning, Thursday, February 11th, between West Chestnut Avenue and Summitview Avenue.

It is anticipated that section of North 56th Avenue will be closed from 8:30 am to 11:00 am for the tree removal project.

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

Because of heavy traffic volume, drivers can expect delays in the project area.  Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the work is completed.

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

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

The project may cause interruptions in scheduled refuse collection. Contact the City of Yakima Refuse Division at 575-6005 for more information.

For more information about the project, contact Streets and Traffic Manager Joe Rosenlund at 576-6430.
