Yuma drivers should plan alternate route while ramps at Interstate 8 and Giss Parkway are closed

Construction of a roundabout at westbound Interstate 8 and Giss Parkway in Yuma is underway. The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for the first major construction-related closure, which is scheduled to begin next week:

The westbound off- and on ramps at the I-8 and Giss Parkway Interchange will close to all traffic beginning Monday, April 10, and remain closed through mid-June.
This closure will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Drivers must use an alternate route, such as 16th Street.
ADOT will maintain two-way traffic on Giss Parkway and access to businesses in the work zone.

The $1.8 million, seven-month project includes constructing a two-lane modern roundabout at the intersection to improve safety and traffic flow. Work also includes improving drainage, intersection lighting, signage and lane striping, and making cyclist accommodations. Learn more at
