The Arizona Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Central Arizona Project, is widening State Route 95 at Bill Williams National Wildlife Refuge Road for a two-way left turn lane.
Crews will intermittently stop traffic from Wednesday (Feb 8th) through Friday (Feb 10th) to provide a safe work zone as crews pour concrete. ADOT advises motorists traveling between Parker and Lake Havasu to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
What to expect during construction:
- Work is scheduled to take place weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Intermittent lane closures are planned during work hours.
- Workers will be in place to direct traffic through the work zone.
- 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.
- No work on holidays or weekends.
- Outside work hours, traffic control devices will remain in place and speed limit will be maintained at 45 mph.
The project also includes drainage improvements, guardrail work, new pavement markings and a new access road to the Central Arizona Project (CAP) Mark Wilmer pumping plant.
This project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2012.
