More work com­ing on Gila Ridge Road

Yuma Sun - - NEWS - FROM STAFF RE­PORTS

The Ari­zona De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion ad­vises driv­ers to plan for con­tin­ued re­stric­tions on Gila Ridge Road near the In­ters­tate 8 and Araby Road traf­fic in­ter­change im­prove­ment project.

Con­trac­tors con­tinue to ex­ca­vate an un­der­ground storm wa­ter sys­tem and re­tain­ing wall, and re­stric­tions are sched­uled to re­main in place through June 29. These had been ex­pected to end this week.

This in­cludes the clo­sure of Gila Ridge Road in both di­rec­tions near the Tan­imura and An­tle Pro­duce build­ing en­trance and the left-turn re­stric­tion onto Gila Ridge Road. Driv­ers can ac­cess busi­nesses on Gila Ridge Road by us­ing Av­enue 3E.

West­bound traf­fic will be per­mit­ted on Gila Ridge Road af­ter 5 p.m. Fri­day, June 22.

In ad­di­tion, Yuma driv­ers should plan to use de­tour routes and al­low plenty of ex­tra travel time while these re­stric­tions re­main in place:

The east­bound I-8 of­framp at Araby Road is closed un­til mid-Au­gust.

Araby Road con­tin­ues to be re­duced to one lane in both di­rec­tions be­tween 30th and 26th streets through fall 2018.

An 11-foot ve­hi­cle width re­stric­tion is in place for north­bound and south­bound traf­fic on Araby Road.

Al­ter­nate routes in­clude Av­enue 3E and 32nd Street. This phase of the project is sched­uled for com­ple­tion in fall 2018.

ADOT is build­ing the sec­ond round­about at I-8 and Araby Road (State Route 195) on the south side of the in­ter­sec­tion.
