2023 – City of Phoenix Street Transportation Dept. – Negative Offset Median Improvements

The City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department selected YPMO to provide public outreach services for the Negative Offset Median Improvements project at six intersections throughout Phoenix: 7th Avenue and Bell Road, 16th Street and Greenway Parkway, 29thStreet and Greenway Road, 40th Street and Greenway Road, 43rd Avenue and Peoria Avenue, and 51st Avenue and Vineyard Road.

The purpose of the project was to improve driver’s visibility for on-coming vehicles at the intersections in left turn lanes and to increase overall public safety by modifying raised medians and left turn configurations at these intersections.

YPMO reviewed the design plans and prepared maps with expertly designed graphics that were clear and depicted the areas where the public could anticipate work would be completed at each intersection. The maps were included in our construction notices that described the various improvements for each area, finalized the postcard mailers with the City, and mailed to residences in May 2023. Our team, Angela Garcia and Jaimie Clements hand delivered the notices and discussed the work with the businesses at each intersection. While construction was originally anticipated to conclude in November 2023, the work was extended due to material delays. YPMO prepared construction updates and re-notified the residences and businesses that work would continue through mid-2024.

We hope you enjoyed learning more about YPMO and the experience we’ve gained over past 15 years! We’ve enjoyed working with all our clients throughout Arizona on such a vast variety of capital improvement projects (streets, sewer, and water), water conservation education, as well as marketing services such as informational radio ads, videos, and websites.

A special shout out to our specialty vendors, MetroPrinting and Westside Signarama, who’ve helped us with printing and project signage over the years – we could not have done it without you!
