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.

  4. Paving on I-17 begins next week so expect lane restrictions Monday-Friday, August 5 through August 9, 2013:

    Paving work will begin on northbound Interstate 17 between State Route 179 (Sedona turnoff) and Stoneman Lake Road as roadway improvements progress.

    Guardrail work through the project area has been underway since June, and the next step is to mill and repave the entire eight-mile stretch of I-17. In early September, rubberized asphalt will be placed along the corridor.

    Starting Tuesday, Aug. 6, lane restrictions will be required when crews begin paving. Work will take place from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday, with work on Fridays possible. Paving work should last approximately six weeks.

    The project is anticipated to be complete in late fall 2013.

    To learn more about rubberized asphalt, call the ADOT Project Hotline at 1.855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov with questions or comments.

  5. The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin a project next week to repave a 16-mile segment of Interstate 40 between Williams and Ash Fork. The project will include new pavement, guardrail replacement, pavement markings and some bridge work.

    Work will be done in both directions on I-40 and will begin on Tuesday, August 6. Work hours are Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Crews will begin on the eastbound lanes as they begin to repair and replace damaged guardrail through the work zone. For the next three weeks, drivers can expect a single lane restriction through the work zone, minimal delays are expected.

    This project is scheduled to be complete by spring of 2014.
