Travel window designated for farm-equipment operators at Interstate 8 and Araby Road in Yuma

Other drivers: Use alternate routes to avoid heavy delays on Araby Road between 10 and 11 a.m.

With construction underway at Araby Road and Interstate 8 in Yuma, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has established a designated daily travel window -- from 10 to 11 a.m. -- for farm-equipment operators to travel through the work zone. All other drivers should use an alternate route, such as Avenue 8 ½ E and Avenue 3E, between 10 and 11 a.m. or plan for heavy delays on Araby Road as farm-equipment operators are escorted through the work zone.

ADOT has also designated farm-equipment staging areas on the north and south sides of the interchange. Farm-equipment operators should wait at one of the staging areas until they are directed through the work zone safely. Learn more and see a map of the staging areas on the project web site.

Outside of the daily travel window, farm equipment operators should seek alternate routes.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For more information, please call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov.
