Crews working on a widening and improvement project on US 95 south of Quartzsite will work through the weekend beginning Friday (June 22) through Sunday (June 24). Workers will be intermittently stopping traffic in the work zone. Drivers are advised to allow extra travel time between Yuma and Quartzsite.
What to expect this weekend:
- Work is scheduled to take place from 6 a.m. Friday (June 22) to 6 p.m. Saturday (June 23).
- Crews will then work from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday (June 24).
- Lane closures of up to four miles are planned during work hours.
- Workers will intermittently direct alternating traffic through the single open lane in the work zone which may result in delays of approximately 15 minutes.
- Law enforcement will be on-site to monitor speeds.
- Message boards will advise drivers of lane restrictions.
This roadway improvement project consists of repaving an eight-mile stretch of US 95 located approximately 15 miles south of Quartzsite between mileposts 96-104. In addition, ADOT will build a northbound left-turn lane at milepost 82 (Cibola Lake Road) and a southbound right-turn lane at milepost 89 (Microwave Telephone Road).
This project is scheduled to be completed by the end of August 2012.
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.
