Sewer Line Construction May Disrupt Traffic

The City of Yakima is advising drivers to avoid a section of North 16th Avenue.

Traffic on N. 16th Avenue between Fruitvale Boulevard and River Road may be interrupted while construction crews put a new sewer line in.

Crews will be working from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. through Friday, however, one lane in both directions will remain open.

Access to businesses in the area will be maintained and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the construction area if necessary.
