New traffi c signals Hwy. 95 & Hwy. 72 New traffi c intersection signals coming to junction of State Routes 95 & 72 The Arizona Department of Transportation will be installing a fully operational traffi c signal at the junction of State Route 95 and State Route 72 near Parker. The new traffi c signal will replace the fl ashing intersection where northbound SR 95 drivers are met with a fl ashing red light and currently yield to traffi c. Preparation work is scheduled to take place Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. beginning on Monday, Feb. 14. Crews will be working off the road, but there will be times when lane restrictions will occur to allow work- ers to safely access the road. Flaggers will be on-site to direct traffi c during affected work hours. There will be no work on holidays or weekends. The new traffi c signal will be in- stalled at a later date to be announced in April. The project is expected to be completed in May. As always, drivers are reminded to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel. ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unsched- uled closures or restrictions may oc- cur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center at or call 5-1-1. Second-hand smoke kills 53,000 people a year.
