Irrigation pipe installation means no turns at Yuma intersection

Only through traffic at Avenue 3E, US 95 during work

YUMA – The intersection of Avenue 3E and US 95 in Yuma will be open to through traffic only – no turns permitted –  for about the next four weeks as Arizona Department of Transportation crews install a 48-inch irrigation pipe.

The work is part of a $3.2 million project to widen and improve both roads on Yuma’s east side.

Construction of a 48-inch, reinforced-concrete irrigation pipe across US 95 is scheduled for completion on Jan. 20.  

During that period, right and left turns will be prohibited at US 95 and Avenue 3E; only through traffic can be accommodated during this phase of work. ADOT encourages drivers to use alternate routes and allow extra time.

ADOT is widening and resurfacing both roads to reduce congestion and improve the surface on roads that are heavily used by commercial truckers. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by August.
