Motorists traveling between Quartzsite and Phoenix should expect minor delays
The Arizona Department of Transportation will continue its pavement improvement project on an 11-mile stretch of Interstate 10 east of Quartzsite beginning Monday (Jan.9). Crews will be working on I-10 weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Intermittent lane closures will take place as crews prepare to remove and replace sections of pavement. Motorists traveling between Quartzsite and Phoenix should plan ahead and plan for minor delays.
What to expect next week:
•Work is scheduled to take place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each work day.•Intermittent lane closures are planned during work hours.•The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph in the construction zone.•Law enforcement will be on-site to monitor speeds.•Message boards will advise drivers of lane restrictions.
This project is scheduled to be completed by April 2012.
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.
