Expect delays on US 95 in Yuma over the next six weeks

Resurfacing roadway from Avenue 3E to Araby Road
March 17, 2017

PHOENIX – Travel on US 95 between Avenue 3E and Araby Road will be restricted to one lane in each direction for about six weeks beginning Monday while Arizona Department of Transportation crews resurface the road as part of a nine-month project.

From Monday through the end of April, the speed limit on that section of US 95 will be reduced to 25 mph and no left turns will be permitted.

For the first three weeks, both directions of traffic will be moved to the eastbound lanes while crews mill, patch and pave the westbound lanes. Traffic will move to westbound lanes about April 10 to allow work to continue on the eastbound lanes.

During the work, drivers may want to consider an alternate route, which could include Interstate 8 or Gila Ridge Road.

The $3.2 million project started in November to widen and improve US 95 between Avenue 3E and Araby, and along Avenue 3E from I-8 to US 95. The project will reduce congestion and improve the surfaces of both roads, which are used heavily by commercial trucks.

The project, scheduled for completion by late summer, will widen Avenue 3E from two lanes to five, including a turn lane, and widen US 95 from four lanes to five, including a turn lane.
