Arizona Avenue is closed this week at 20th Street for underground work installing water and sewer lines.
Through traffic should consider an alternate route such as 1st Avenue or Pacific Avenue. The following detours are available:
- Factor Avenue via 18th Place and 22nd Street.
- Walnut Avenue via 19th Street and 21st Street.
Business access is currently available via northbound Arizona Avenue from 24th Street; motorists will be able to travel north on Arizona past the detour sign at 22nd Street to reach businesses from the Yuma Sun to the south.
If work proceeds without complication, the closure is currently slated to last through Friday, Oct. 27.
A second phase of this work is scheduled for Nov. 16-24. This will take place at Arizona Avenue and 22nd Street, where 22nd will be right-turn-only for northbound Arizona Avenue motorists with a detour to Factor Avenue. Arizona Avenue will be closed to through-traffic southbound motorists at 20th Street, while business access to locations south of 20th Street will be maintained.
