Turning lane to be added at Bill Williams

The Arizona Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Central Arizona Project, will begin a project to add a two-way left turn lane to State Route 95 at the Bill Williams National Wildlife Refuge Road.

Construction work will begin Tuesday (January 17th). Although no immediate lane closures are scheduled, there will be times when workers briefly stop traffic on SR 95 at milepost 161. ADOT advises motorists to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.

What to expect during construction:

  • Work scheduled weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Intermittent lane closures, planned during work hours.
  • Workers in place to direct traffic.
  • The speed limit of 25 mph in the construction zone.
  • Law enforcement on-site to monitor speeds.
  • Message boards advising drivers of lane restrictions.

The $2.4 million project also includes drainage improvements, guardrail work, new pavement markings and adding an access road to the Central Arizona Project (CAP) Mark Wilmer pumping plant.

This project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2012.
