STOP SIGNS INSTEAD OF TRAFFIC LIGHTS

The intersections will be without power on Tuesday during project work hours of 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Crews will post stop signs in all four directions at the intersections while each traffic signal is dark.

MIGHT WANT TO FIND A WAY AROUND THE DARK SIGNALS

Signals at the above intersections will be out during project work hours of 6:30 am to 12:00 pm on their scheduled dates. Crews will post stop signs in all four directions at the intersections while each traffic signal is dark. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction with stop signs at the 4-way stop.

BE READY TO SLOW DOWN OR JUST AVOID THE AREAS

A press release says "this traffic signal head upgrade project is similar to one the City of Yakima completed last summer along several intersections of Yakima Avenue. Drivers are reminded 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."
