Another day in the city of Yakima and another signal upgrade on Wednesday in a popular area of Yakima that could impact your commute. Yakima city crews have been busy this summer with road and signal work and the work continues on Wednesday, August 31. You may want to readjust your plans.

The work is happening at Yakima Avenue and 6th Avenue

Crews on Wednesday will be upgrading the traffic signal at the intersection of Yakima Avenue and 6th Avenue. That means the traffic signal will not be working from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm on Wednesday. A press release from the city says "Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction with stop signs at the 4-way stop." Remember the 4-way-stop rule you learned in drivers education?
The work is part of an ongoing project in the city this sumer. The improvements include upgrading to larger, more efficient 12-inch LED signal heads. The new lights are easier for drivers to see and they call for less maintenance.

A lot of different work is underway this summer in other areas

Other work is happening in the city including work by the Nob Hill Water Association. That work is happening this week on Summitview from 40th to 48th Avenue. Traffic restrictions are in place.
Be careful if you're driving through the construction zones. Drivers are reminded the speed limit through all traffic-related work zones within the city of Yakima is 20 miles-per-hour.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
