Lane closures scheduled Thursday and Friday
at State Route 95 and State Route 72
Workers will direct traffic through the intersection
YUMA - The Arizona Department of Transportation will alternately close one of the two lanes at the State Route 95 and State Route 72 intersection south of Parker beginning at 7 a.m. on Thursday (Feb. 24) until 5 pm on Friday (Feb. 25). Workers will be present to direct motorists through the construction zone. The lane closures are necessary to provide a safe work zone as preliminary work for a new traffic signal begins.
ADOT will return in early April to continue working on the improvements and installation of the traffic signal.. The project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2011.
As always, drivers are reminded to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
The construction project schedule is subject to change due to a variety of reasons, including weather, material availability and mechanical difficulties.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
