The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin a pavement repair project along U.S. 95 between Araby Road and the Yuma Proving Grounds on Monday (April 9).
The $800,000 project consists of repairing cracks in the pavement at four different segments of U.S. 95 from Yuma (mileposts 29-44 and 88-96) to Parker (mileposts 142-148 and mileposts 152-161). The U.S. 95/ State Route 95 project is scheduled to be completed by May.
What to expect during construction:
- Daily lane closures are planned between 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Araby Road to the Yuma Proving Grounds.
- Workers will temporarily stop traffic and escort them through the work zone.
- Motorists are advised to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
- Message boards will advise drivers of lane restrictions.
ADOT will send updates as the pavement repair operation progresses along U.S. 95 near Parker.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
