Expect delays starting next week on Araby Road near I-8 in Yuma

Project is replacing in-pavement sensors that detect traffic
December 14, 2017

YUMA – Drivers on Araby Road south of Interstate 8 will see occasional delays next week as Arizona Department of Transportation crews install a new radar detection system to regulate the traffic signals at Araby and 32nd Street.

The radar detection system will replace an aging loop detection system in the pavement at the intersection.

Periodic lane restrictions are expected during the work, which is scheduled for 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. starting Monday, Dec. 18, and continuing through Friday, Dec. 22. Signal timing in the intersection may also be altered during the work. Drivers should approach the intersection with caution.

The site is just south of the Araby Road interchange with I-8. Work on the project to replace signalized intersections with modern roundabouts is on hold until spring to accommodate commercial vehicles hauling winter produce.
