The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will break ground on a US 95 widening project in Yuma on August 23. Crews will reconstruct and widen US 95 from a two lane, undivided highway to five lanes. Once completed, the highway will include two travel lanes in each direction and a center two-way left turn lane that will provide a high level of service to meet the connectivity needs of surrounding urban, agricultural, military, and distant metropolitan areas. ADOT expects the project to be completed in Summer 2023.
The Yuma Metropolitan Planning Organization (YMPO) will be holding a groundbreaking for this project at 9:00 am, Thursday, August 5, near the intersection of US 95 and Avenue 9E.
Yuma County residents who travel along US 95 can expect delays as lane restrictions along US 95 will be necessary during work hours of 6:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.
