Concrete repairs and guardrail work along Interstate 8 continue in the Yuma area near Araby Road on Monday (March 19) through Wednesday (March 21). Motorists should plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
What to expect next week:
- One lane will be reduced on eastbound I-8 at Araby Road from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
- One lane will be reduced on westbound I-8 at Araby Road from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
- Work continues on eastbound and westbound I-8 at 16th Street from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. with one lane reduced in each direction daily.
Message boards and signs will advise drivers of restrictions. Law enforcement is on-site to enforce speed limits and control traffic.
Work is not scheduled on holidays or weekends. This project is scheduled to be completed in spring 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.
