Drivers can expect ten miles of one-lane traffic
YUMA - Paving is scheduled to begin Monday, Nov. 29 along 10 miles of Interstate 10 between the Maricopa county line and Harquahala Valley Road near Salome.
Beginning Nov. 29, commuters can expect the following:
•One westbound and one eastbound lane will be closed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday to allow crews to access the roadway safely.
•The speed limit through the work zone will be reduced to 45 mph.
•Drivers can expect delays of up to 15 minutes.
•Loads wider than 14 feet will be allowed to travel through the area on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, when paving operations are not taking place.
Message boards will be displayed to inform commuters of construction. Law enforcement officers will be present along the work zone to control traffic and monitor speeds.
Paving is expected to be completed by December 16.
ADOT will fill cracks and apply material to protect the roadway on I-10 near Harquahala Valley Road. Over time, varying temperatures, along with traffic, have worn down the roadway surface, creating small cracks. This project will seal the highway surface, preventing water from seeping into the cracks and damaging the base layer of pavement. Performing preventative maintenance is a cost-effective method for extending the life of the roadway.
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 unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
