The City asks all motorists to plan ahead and to obey the reduced speed limit. Those using residential streets as detour routes are asked to respect the 25 mph speed limit and be attentive for children and pets. 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 St., 8th St., or 32nd St. for east-west through traffic, and Arizona Ave., Ave. A, Pacific Ave., or Ave. B for north-south through traffic.
1st Ave., 24th - 26th streets
Beginning as early as March 6, crews will begin a project to relocate a waterline along 1st Avenue and Madison Avenue, between 24th and 26th streets. Additionally, they will be replacing pavement along 1st Avenue and replacing four sewer manholes in that area. Work is scheduled to be complete by July 4.
Araby Road, I-8 waterline relocation
A project to relocate a waterline on Araby Road near its intersection with Interstate-8 will begin March 13 and finish in June. More details regarding changes to traffic in the area will be released when they become available.

8th Street is closed between Castle Dome and Pacific Avenue. Pacific Avenue is closed to through traffic north of 12th Street, and closed to all traffic north of 8th Street. Roadway, water and sewer work is being done in conjunction with the Pacific Avenue Athletic Complex. Detour by using 12th Street between Pacific and Castle Dome Avenue. The project is anticipated to be complete in late summer.
Avenue 3E/US 95
A nine-month project to widen and improve both US 95 and Avenue 3E is currently under way. Beginning the week of Jan. 24, crews will be installing a 48-inch concrete irrigation pipe on the north side of Highway 95. Drivers are asked to be aware that no left turns are permitted at Highway 95, though left and right turns onto Highway 95 from northbound Avenue 3E are permitted. The north section of Avenue 3E at the intersection is closed to traffic.
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 US 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 August 2017.
Avenue B, 28th-32nd streets
Crews will be installing two pipelines for fiber-optic cables in the area west of Avenue B, between 28th Street and 32nd Street, as early as Feb. 6. The work will require a lane closure on along Avenue B, requiring traffic heading north to shift lanes. The project is slated to be completed by March 6.
1st Ave., 13th-14th streets
A project to relocate existing facilities for the City's Fleet Maintenance project will require lane closures, shoulder work and additional traffic control on 1st Avenue, near the area of 13th through 14th streets. Signs will be posted to alert traffic to the closures and detours in the area. Work is scheduled to take place through April 15.
Kennedy Lane, Arizona Ave.
Crews will be working along the portion of 20th Street between Arizona Avenue and Kennedy Lane to pull fiber through an existing conduit and for underground bore work. The work will lead to a lane shift along 20th Street in the area. The project is expected to begin as early as Jan. 19, and will be finished by the end of March. There will be no parking permitted along 20th Street between Arizona Avenue and Kennedy Lane while the project is under way. Traffic traveling in either direction on 20th Street is to keep to the right.
U.S. 95 at Fortuna Wash - ADOT
Caltrans crews continue to work on the reconstruction of Interstate-8 in Imperial County, west of Yuma, to extend the life expectancy of the pavement from State Route 111 to the border with Arizona. Associated lane closures and detours may cause significant delays. Signage will be posted alerting motorists of the work and associated detours. The segment of work closest to Yuma is located west of SR-186 to the state line where Arizona meets California.
Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction from the agricultural checkpoint in California to the state line with Arizona. The westbound off-ramp and on-ramp at Fourth Avenue are closed with detour and signage in place to direct traffic to use Winterhaven Drive. The eastbound off- and on-ramp at SR-186/Algodones Road have reopened. The eastbound off- and on-ramps at Winterhaven Drive are closed, with detour and signage in place to use Fourth Avenue.
