Motorists traveling between Phoenix and Quartzsite should expect minor delays

Eastbound I-10 travel limited to one lane east of Quartzsite through the weekend

The Arizona Department of Transportation is in the process of repaving an 11-mile stretch of Interstate 10 east of Quartzsite to create a smoother ride for drivers. This ongoing project will require a lane closure through the upcoming weekend (Oct. 28- Oct. 30). Construction work will resume on Monday (Oct. 31).

What to expect during the weekend:

•Eastbound I-10 passing lane closed for approximately half a mile east of Quartzsite.
•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.

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.
