US 95, Avenue 3E improvements to begin Monday, Nov. 14

November 10, 2016

Work will begin Monday, Nov. 14, on a nine-month project to widen and improve US 95 and Avenue 3E on Yuma’s east side, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The $3.2 million project will increase Avenue 3E from two lanes to five lanes with a turn lane, and increase US 95 from four to five lanes, also with a turn lane:

  • Improvements will occur on Avenue 3E from Interstate 8 north to US 95.
  • On US 95, improvements will occur from west of Avenue 3E to east of Araby Road.
  • Work is scheduled for completion in August 2017.

ADOT will maintain access to businesses in the work zone and keep both roadways open during construction; however, drivers should expect lane restrictions. Use alternate routes to avoid delays and allow extra travel time.

Both routes are used heavily by commercial trucking. The project is expected to reduce congestion and improve the road surface.
