YUMA, Ariz. - Three Yuma intersections will be closed overnight next week as the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) works to preserve the pavement surfaces. Work is scheduled to occur from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, June 19; Tuesday, June 20; and Wednesday, June 21, at the following locations:
Pacific Avenue and East Gila Ridge Road;
Araby Road (Highway 195) and 32nd Street; and
Avenue 8 ½ E (the eastbound Interstate 8 off ramp) and 32nd Street.
The eastbound off-ramp at Interstate 8 and Avenue 8 ½ E will also be closed.
Motorists should use alternate routes, watch for law enforcement on site directing traffic, and observe reduced speed limits.
The slurry seal that maintenance crews will apply to the roadway not only protects the pavement, but also extends its lifespan. Crews will return to the work zones in July for lane striping.
Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For more information, call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov. For real-time highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT's Traveler Information Site at www.az511.gov, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511, except while driving.
Monsoon season has arrived in Arizona. Don't drive into dust storms. Remember, Pull Aside, Stay Alive.
