Fiber optic installation will affect traffic at 56th and Summitview on August 23rd.

 

 

The installation of fiber optic lines in the west part of Yakima will interrupt the traffic

signal at 56th Avenue and Summitview Avenue from mid morning until mid afternoon on

Thursday, August 23rd.

 

The traffic signal at the busy intersection will be placed in the flashing mode while the

fiber optic line installation project is underway. Flaggers will direct drivers though the

intersection.

 

LS Networks will be putting in underground lines in the area as part of a project linking

satellite towers and other telecommunications facilities located throughout Yakima.

Work on the project is expected to begin at about 9:00 am on Thursday and be

completed by 3:00 pm.

 

If possible, drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes on Thursday in order to keep

traffic in the project area to a minimum.

 

For more information on the project, call 575-6138.
