The Arizona Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration are working to improve Business Route 8 and the 4th Avenue Gateway in Yuma County.
Artist’s rendering of improvements to the area.
A $773,000 improvement project is scheduled to begin in spring 2017 and last approximately seven months. ADOT will add a right-turn lane and 10-foot wide, colored-concrete shared-use path from 1st Avenue along the east side of 4th Avenue to the existing Yuma Canal Bridge. The project also includes upgrading and refurnishing existing lighting; installing signage; landscaping and rehabilitating the Yuma Crossing concrete historic land marker.
Drivers should expect lane restrictions while work in underway; however ADOT will maintain two-way traffic on 4th Avenue and access to businesses throughout the duration of the project.
