AZ I-17 Road Closure Notice

Sedona AZ (January 23, 2014) – Next week Arizona Department of Transportation crews will close Interstate 17 in both directions between General Crook Trail and AZ State Route 169 one hour between 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday nights.

The nightly closures allow work on the climbing lane project south of Camp Verde (AZ) to safely continue. Each night, between 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., Northbound I-17 will be stopped at SR 169 and Southbound I-17 traffic will be stopped at General Crook Trail until the work is completed and the roadway can be reopened.

In addition to the full closures, drivers can expect a single-lane restriction in both directions through the work zone starting Sunday night, January 26, through Friday morning, January 31, between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 in the morning.

During this construction project, bicyclists are not permitted through the project work zone at any time, as the shoulders along I-17 will be closed. Bicyclists can bypass the work zone via State Route 169 for northbound riders or State Route 260 for southbound riders. 

The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage. ADOT advises drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
