Improvements to US 95 north of Yuma continue next week as crews place the top layer of rubberized asphalt onto the pavement. From Monday (April 2) to Thursday (April 5), workers will temporarily stop traffic as they continue paving sections of US 95. Drivers traveling between Yuma and Quartzsite should allow extra travel time and be prepared for delays near the Yuma Proving Ground, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
What to expect next week:
- Crews will work from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday (April 2).
- Crews will work from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
- Traffic will temporarily be stopped and escorted through the work zone.
- The speed limit in the work zone will be reduced to 45 mph.
- Law enforcement will be on-site to monitor speeds.
- Signs and message boards will be displayed to inform drivers of restrictions.
- No work is scheduled on holidays or weekends.
The project is scheduled to be completed by early May 2012.
