City of Yakima restricts commercial truck traffic on several roadways due to winter damage

YAKIMA, Wash. - Commercial trucks are now prohibited by the city of Yakima on a section of 66th Avenue, Prospect Way, and Cowiche Canyon Road.

The ban will remain in effect until further notice due to damage to the roads from winter weather than cannot be repaired until asphalt plants can open this Spring.

There's no severe road damage to Prospect Way or Cowiche Canyon, but both are used as a connector to 66th Avenue.

Damage on 66th Avenue is between Englewood and Scenic Drive.

Once repairs are made, City leaders say the restriction will likely be lifted.
