YUMA- Visitors to downtown Yuma will soon notice some changes as Pilkington Construction prepares for the demolition of buildings at 185 and 197 S. Main Street to make way for the new Yuma County Administration Services building. The building will enable County residents and others to obtain multiple services in one convenient downtown location.
Over the coming weeks, fencing will be going up around the location complete with a walk-through tunnel between the Legacy Building (185 S. Main St.) and Regency Main Street Cinemas. For enhanced pedestrian safety, a crosswalk will be added mid-block between Cafecito and the northwest corner of the construction project site.
There will be sidewalk closures along the front of the project site (along a portion of Main St.), the south side of the project site (north side of 2nd Street from Maiden Lane to Main St.) as well as a partial closure of Maiden Lane along the east side of the project. The southern portion of the parking lot east of the construction site will be closed as well.
Pilkington anticipates construction of the new County building will take approximately two years to complete. Once finished, it will be home to the Yuma County Board of Supervisors and Board of Supervisors auditorium, County Administration, Human Resources, and Financial Services, as well as the offices of the County Treasurer, Recorder, Voter and Election Services, Assessor and School Superintendent.
As demolition and construction begins in the coming weeks, a project update webpage will become available complete with a live stream of the construction site to allow residents to monitor the progress. Anyone will be able to navigate to www.yumacountyaz.gov/constructionupdate to check on the progress of the project. This webpage release date will be announced soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns regarding the construction project, please email [email protected].
