8th Ave Closure Extended

A grind and overlay project in Yakima is extended.

The closure of the one-block section of 8th Avenue between Mead and Logan Avenues will remain in effect through at least May 23rd.

The closure, which was made for a grind and overlay project, was expected to last about a week, but has been extended because additional work on utility lines in the area needs to be completed.

The city also says crews have run into unexpected groundwater issues.
