Weekend work scheduled on US 95
south of Quartzsite
Crews working this weekend so highway can be clear for Memorial Day holiday
Crews working on a widening and improvement project on US 95 south of Quartzsite will work daily beginning Friday (May 18) through Thursday (May 24) in an effort to remove all restrictions in time for the busy Memorial Day travel weekend. No work or restrictions are scheduled over Memorial Day weekend.
What to expect between mileposts 96-104 on US 95 during the next week:
- Work is scheduled to take place daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Lane closures of up to two and a half miles are planned during work hours.
- Workers will direct traffic through the work zone at times which may result in delays of approximately 15 minutes.
- The speed limit will be reduced to 25 mph in the construction zone.
- Law enforcement will be on-site to monitor speeds.
- Message boards will advise drivers of lane restrictions.
- After work hours, traffic control devices will remain in place and speed limit will be maintained at 55 mph.
This roadway improvement project consists of repaving an eight-mile stretch of US 95 approximately 15 miles south of Quartzsite between mileposts 96-104. In addition, ADOT will build a northbound left-turn lane at milepost 82 (Cibola Lake Road) and a southbound right-turn lane at milepost 89 (Microwave Telephone Road).
This project is scheduled to be completed by this summer.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
