Pavement maintenance on Interstate 10
near Quartzsite begins Monday
Lane Closures for six miles near California border
YUMA - The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin work Monday (April 25) to seal cracks in the pavement on a 32-mile stretch of Interstate 10 starting at the California border. Initially, a six-mile segment of the highway will be temporarily restricted to one lane in each direction as crews work on the road surface.
Work is scheduled to take place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The project is scheduled for completion in May.
There will be message boards and signs to warn drivers of the construction zone and reduced speed limit of 55 miles per hour. Law enforcement will be on site to control traffic and monitor speed.
ADOT advises drivers 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.
