Sedona AZ (July 29, 2013) – Overnight closures continue on Arizona Interstate 17 south of Camp Verde, Arizona, with one hour closures expected in both directions between midnight and 3 a.m. as ADOT continues work on a climbing lane project.
The work will occur overnight on Tuesday, July 30, and Wednesday, July 31, as crews continue blasting along the interstate.
Each night, the first closure will be from midnight to 1 a.m. and the second closure will be 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. Northbound I-17 will be stopped at State Route 169 and southbound I-17 traffic will be stopped at General Crook Trail until the work is completed and the roadway is reopened.
In addition to the full closures, drivers can expect single-lane restrictions in both directions through the work zone between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday night through Friday morning. During construction, bicyclists are not permitted through the project work zone as the shoulders along I-17 are closed.
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.
