April 26, 2016 Yuma, Ariz. – 16th St. and 4th Ave Construction.
The meeting will be heldin Council Chambers of Yuma City Hall, One City Plaza.
It is an informational meeting only. City staff members will provide a brief description of the project. Attendees will then be afforded the opportunity to approach staff members individually with questions.
Long understood to be Yuma’s busiest intersection, the 16th Street and 4th Avenue improvements project will add dedicated right-turn lanes and dual left-turn lanes in all corners of the intersection. Bike lanes, as identified within the transportation element of the voter-approved General Plan, will be constructed.
Business access will be maintained through the course of the project. Yumans who frequent the area will be encouraged to continue to do so; the City asks motorists to please plan ahead to stay on schedule.
The City’s water transmission system will see some upgrades as part of this project as well. Existing waterlines of various sizes will be replaced with one single 16-inch water main. A section of 10-inch waterline on 4th Avenue between 16th Street and 17th Street will be replaced with a 12-inch waterline.
