The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising motorists to plan ahead for alternating lane restrictions on US 95 near Yuma beginning next week. Drivers should allow extra travel time and plan for possible delays.

Contractors are scheduled to do crack seal application work north of Yuma. The work is part of multiple pavement preservation projects on highways across the state.

The following restrictions will be in place from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Wednesday, Feb. 19, and ending Friday, Feb. 21, and resuming Monday, Feb. 24, and ending Friday, Feb. 28:

US 95 will be reduced to one lane in both directions between mileposts 63.5 and 80.

Motorists should anticipate a 3-mile lane restriction while crews progress through the work zone.

The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph.

A 14-foot vehicle width restriction will be in place.

Flaggers and a pilot car will direct motorists through the work zone.

Motorists should allow extra travel time for possible delays while work is underway.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For more information, please call the ADOT Bilingual Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or go to
