Natural Gas Line Relocation to Interrupt Traffic in Yakima

Starting Wednesday, traffic through the intersections of 5th Avenue and I Street in Yakima will be interrupted while a project to relocate a 6-inch natural gas line gets underway.

Cascade Natural Gas crews will be working 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday in and around the intersection to move the line.  Lane restrictions will vary throughout each day.

During the project, traffic delays are likely to occur and drivers should use alternate routes if possible.

Access to businesses in the area will be maintained and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.
