The Arizona Department of Transportation began a project in November 2016 to widen and improve Highway 95 and Avenue 3E on Yuma’s east side. The $3.2 million, nine-month project aims to reduce congestion and improve the surfaces of both roads, which are used heavily by commercial truckers.
- ADOT will increase Avenue 3E from two lanes to five lanes with a turn lane, and increase Highway 95 from four to five lanes, also with a turn lane.
- Improvements will occur on Avenue 3E from Interstate 8 north to Highway 95.
- On Highway 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.
