US 95 and Avenue 8E Intersection Improvement Project

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration are working to improve safety and traffic flow at the intersection on US 95 and Avenue 8E in Yuma County. The project is located east of the city of Yuma between Avenue 7E (mile post 30.67) and Avenue 8E (milepost 31.17).
