Construction for the 16th Street and 4th Avenue intersection improvements project is under way. The current phase of work reduces 16th Street to one lane of through traffic in each direction, with the left turn lanes still open to access 4th Avenue. Northbound and southbound lanes on 4th Avenue are restricted to one lane on their respective approaches to the intersection. Right turn restrictions remain in place for large trucks and semitrailers. Latest update: New traffic signals have been installed at the intersection and are now active.
The City of Yuma asks you to Obey
The City asks all motorists to plan ahead and to obey the reduced speed limit. While business access will be maintained at all times, those seeking through traffic routes may wish to avoid the construction zone, using roads such as 24th Street, 8th Street or 32nd Street for east-west through traffic, and Arizona Avenue, Avenue A, Pacific Avenue or Avenue B for north-south through traffic.
Water pressure: The City would like to remind the public that lower than normal water pressures may be experienced as parts of the City’s old water system are being prepared for replacement by a new system, between now and then end of October. Lower than normal water pressure may be experienced during peak morning hours of 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and in the afternoon between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. The areas most likely to be impacted are those from the East Main Canal to just west of 4th Avenue, from 12th Street to 24th Street.
