Evening closures coming to 24th Street for gas line repair

Yuma motorists are advised to avoid the area of 24th Street and Arizona Avenue for the next three evenings, as Southwest Gas will perform emergency repair work to a gas line.

24th Street will be closed between the east side of Walnut Avenue and the west side of Arizona Avenue from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday, July 26 through Friday, July 28, reopening for daytime traffic each day.

While a detour will be available for local traffic via Walnut and 23rd Street, the City urges motorists who would normally use 24th Street for through traffic to take 32nd Street or 16th Street instead.

Arizona Avenue itself will remain open with lane width reductions and turns allowed only to eastbound 24th Street.
