The repaving of a 16-mile long segment on Interstate 15 in northwest Arizona will continue through this weekend and into next week, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Drivers traveling on I-15 should prepare for the following restrictions:
Saturday, Oct. 27 to Friday, Nov. 2, the southbound left lane will be closed between mileposts 18-26.
The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage. ADOT advises drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to expect at least a 30-minute delay or greater on weekends. Drivers are also advised to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
The $11.6 million project includes removal of a layer of the existing pavement and repaving the roadway from the Virgin River Gorge to the Utah State line (mileposts 13-29).
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
