Intermittent lane closures on Interstate 10 east of Quartzsite begin Monday

Motorists should expect 15 minute delays

The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin to repair segments of pavement along Interstate 10 between Quartzsite and the Bouse Wash Rest Area Monday (Aug. 22) and through Wednesday (Aug. 31). Intermittent lane closures are planned during work hours which will take place between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day. There will be no work on Fridays or over the weekend. Drivers should plan ahead and expect approximately 15 minute delays.

The work consists of removing and replacing pavement along segments of eastbound and westbound I-10 beginning east of Quartzsite to the Bouse Wash Rest Area. Trucks carrying loads wider than 12 feet will not be allowed to travel through the work zone during work hours.

Message boards will advise drivers of lane restrictions. To ensure safety in the work zone, the speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph. Law enforcement will be on-site to help monitor speeds and control traffic.

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.
