It happens every year and it could impact your commute. Yakima city crews will start a series of traffic signal upgrades at intersections over the next several weeks.

HEY DRIVERS REMEMBER THE 4-WAY-STOP RULE?

The work starts on Wednesday, June 5.  The intersections listed will be reduced to a single lane of traffic in each direction, with stop signs posted in all directions. That means you'll have to remember the 4-way-stop rule. Washington State Patrol Troopers say the right of way in a four-way stop in Washington state goes to the first driver to reach the intersection at a complete stop. If more than one driver gets there at the same time, the vehicle to the right goes first. Okay? So now you remember?
