All:

Attached is the agenda packet for the YMPO Executive Board meeting scheduled for Thursday, December 13, 2018, starting at 1:30 p.m. at the City of San Luis City Hall. As usual, to prevent problems with the Arizona Open Meeting law, it is being emailed out using blind copy addresses.

The proposed address by Mayor Yescas, from the City of San Luis, Rio Colorado, has not yet been fully confirmed at this stage.

Members are advised that there will be a pre-holiday luncheon, starting shortly after noon, in one of the conference rooms at the San Luis City Hall and the YMPO meeting will be held in the Council Chambers.

The minutes from the previous meeting, on November 1, 2018, will be distributed to members very early next week. A fully-linked electronic copy of the agenda packet, minutes and summaries will be published on the YMPO website, also very early next week.

If there are any questions with regard to the meeting or any of the attachments, please contact me as shown below. If you get my voicemail, please leave me a message and I will return it as soon as possible.

In Yuma, eastbound I-8 ramps at Araby Road closing until September

New interchange to be completed by November

PHOENIX – Eastbound Interstate 8 entry and exit ramps at Araby Road (State Route 195) in Yuma will be closed for a month beginning next week as crews construct a new retaining wall as part of an Arizona Department of Transportation project upgrading the interchange.

I-8 drivers can use exits at Avenue 3E, Avenue 8½ E and 32nd Street during the closure scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 13.

Araby Road remains limited to one lane in each direction between 26th and 30th streets near I-8, with no left turn from northbound Araby to Gila Ridge Road. The maximum vehicle width on Araby Road is 12 feet.

Also on Monday, Aug. 13, the westbound lane of Gila Ridge Road, closed since May, will reopen between Araby and the Tanimura and Antle Produce building at 6435 Gila Ridge Road.

ADOT is completing the second half of a project to replace traditional traffic signals with modern roundabouts at the Araby Road interchange. The roundabouts, which are safer and move traffic more efficiently than traffic signals, will be large enough to accommodate large trucks, recreational vehicles and agricultural equipment.

A roundabout on the north side of I-8 was completed in 2017. The current work south of I-8 is scheduled to be complete this fall.
