Major roadwork on Summitview Avenue in Yakima begins Monday. The project will resurface portions of Summitview Avenue and replace ramps and may impact the short route to Yakima. City officials say drivers will see lane closures on Summitview Avenue from 40th Avenue to 48th Avenue and 56th Avenue to 72nd Avenue during the project from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays until the end of the month.

Work is expected to continue until October

The work and traffic impacts are expected to continue until Thursday, October 6. Drivers are reminded that the speed limit in all traffic-related work zones in the City of Yakima is 20 miles per hour. Access to residences and businesses in the project area will be maintained as far as possible.

A tree-cutting project will also impact traffic on Monday

Also on Monday, a section of 16th Avenue will be reduced to one lane for a tree-cutting project at Milroy Park.
A city news release says northbound traffic on 16th Avenue will be one lane between Browne Avenue and Lincoln Avenue during construction from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday. The sidewalk along this section of 16th Avenue will be closed for the duration of the project.
“The trees are at the end of their life cycle and have become a potential hazard to users of Milroy Park as well as those traveling along 16th Avenue,” said Ken Wilkinson, director of parks and recreation. Due to the high volume of traffic, motorists can expect delays in the project area. Drivers should use alternate routes where possible until work is complete.

WATCH: See how much gas it cost the year you started driving

To learn more about how gas prices have changed over the years, Stacker calculated the cost of a gallon of gas for each of the past 84 years.

WATCH: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pros and cons, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best in which to live. To find out, Stacker looked at data from WalletHub, released on June 17, 2020, which compares US beach towns. The ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. Cities ranged from 10,000 to 150,000 people, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From this ranking, we’ve selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida won’t be surprised to learn that many of the cities featured here are in one of these two states.
