at the Araby traf­fic in­ter­change. Traf­fic is re­stricted to one lane in each di­rec­tion un­til the first of Nov.

Av­enue 3E clo­sure (ADOT)

There will be a full clo­sure along Av­enue 3E as crews chip-seal the road­way sur­fance be­tween High­way 95 and 24th Street start­ing at 5 a.m. on Sept. 19 and last­ing un­til 9 a.m. on Sept. 20. The work was orig­i­nally sched­uled for Sept. 12 but had to be resched­uled due to in­clement weather. Al­ter­nate routes in­clude 24th Street and Av­enue 4E.

3rd Street, 23rd Av­enue to 18th Drive

Work is un­der­way to re­place a wa­ter­line on 3rd Street be­tween 23rd Av­enue and 18th Drive. This project will re­place/in­stall ap­prox­i­mately 1,260 feet of PVC pipe and re­place fire hy­drants. 3rd Street will be closed from the east edge of 24th Drive to 18th Av­enue. Once the project is un­der­way, work will take place be­tween the hours of 5 a.m. and 3 p.m. for ap­prox­i­mately 45 days.

1st Av­enue, near 3rd Street

A por­tion of 1st Av­enue near its in­ter­sec­tion with Giss Park­way will be closed as part of a 60-day project that re­quires ac­cess to a man­hole in the area. While the project is un­der­way, no park­ing will be per­mit­ted along 1st Av­enue near its in­ter­sec­tion with Giss Park­way. 1st Av­enue will be com­pletely closed in that same vicin­ity. Signs will be posted to alert traf­fic to the hard clo­sure. Ad­di­tion­ally, the cross streets at 1st Av­enue and Giss Park­way will be closed.

32nd Street, Ave. 7E to 31st Place

Crews will be plac­ing fiber and a fu­ture path at a lo­ca­tion on 32nd St., be­tween South Av­enue 7E and 31st Place. The project will re­quire shoul­der work along 32nd St. while crews are in the area near the bore pit that is nec­es­sary as part of the project. Traf­fic signs will be posted to alert driv­ers to the road work in the zone. One lane of traf­fic will be main­tained in each di­rec­tion. The project is to be com­pleted by mid-Nov.

Coun­try Club Drive, near Ari­zona Av­enue

South­west Gas Cor­po­ra­tion will be re­plac­ing a gas ser­vice line at a res­i­dence off of Coun­try Club Drive be­tween Ari­zona Av­enue and South Chiq­uita Drive, dur­ing which time no ve­hi­cles will be per­mit­ted to park along Coun­try Club Drive in the area. Ad­di­tion­ally, there will be a par­tial lane clo­sure and a full side­walk clo­sure near the work­zone while crews are in the area car­ry­ing out util­ity work. The project is to be com­pleted be­fore the end of Oct.

Mag­no­lia Ave., 3rd St. to Colorado St.

A project to pull fiber through an ex­ist­ing con­duit will re­quire a par­tial lane clo­sure on Mag­no­lia Av­enue from 3rd St. to Colorado St. and east­bound to 9th Av­enue. The project is to be com­pleted by early Nov. Signs will be posted to alert traf­fic to the road­work that is un­der­way and of ac­com­pa­ny­ing traf­fic con­trol. The speed limit will be re­duced in the work­zone area.

Av­enue 3E/High­way 95

High­way 95 is re­duced to one lane of traf­fic in each di­rec­tion from Av­enue 3E to Araby Road (a stretch of ap­prox­i­mately 3.5 miles) as part of the con­struc­tion for this project. The speed limit in the area will be re­duced to 25 mph. The $3.2 mil­lion project will widen both roads to five lanes and to in­clude a turn lane. Work will take place on Av­enue 3E from north of the In­ter­state 8 in­ter­change to past the US 95 in­ter­sec­tion, as well as on U.S. 95 from about 500 feet west of the Av­enue 3E in­ter­sec­tion to just past the Araby Road in­ter­sec­tion. Both roads are ex­pected to re­main open with lane re­stric­tions in place while the project is un­der­way. Driv­ers are asked to find al­ter­nate routes to avoid po­ten­tial de­lays. The Ari­zona De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion (ADOT) will main­tain ac­cess to busi­nesses in the work zone and keep both road­ways open dur­ing con­struc­tion. The project is sched­uled to be com­pleted by late sum­mer 2017.

I-8 west of 4th Ave. — Cal­trans

LAT­EST UP­DATE: Cal­trans crews con­tinue to work on the re­con­struc­tion of In­ter­state-8 in Im­pe­rial County, west of Yuma. Re­cently, crews re­duced traf­fic to a sin­gle lane on west­bound I-8 be­tween Sidewinder Road and about a mile west of Ogilby Road. Both travel di­rec­tions have been switched to the I-8 east­bound lanes di­vided by k-rail. In ad­di­tion, the west­bound on- and of­framps at Ogilby Road (exit 159) are closed to traf­fic. Signs have been placed to alert mo­torists to the ramp clo­sures and to al­ter­nate routes.

The I-8 Cor­ri­dor is a ma­jor pave­ment re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion project con­sist­ing of five seg­ments that will con­struct Con­tin­u­ously Re­in­forced Con­crete Pave­ment (CRCP) over 48 miles on In­ter­state 8 in Im­pe­rial County. The work will re­sult in a long-last­ing su­pe­rior road­way, ca­pa­ble of with­stand­ing the heav­i­est traf­fic loads. Con­struc­tion be­gan in 2016 on three of the five seg­ments. Work will be com­pleted by 2019.
