Pavement and utility work is taking place along eastbound and westbound State Route 72 between Bouse and Parker until early May requiring a single lane closure from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Workers will intermittently be stopping traffic during work hours and directing alternating traffic through the work zone. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
Signs will be in place to advise motorists of the lane restrictions and work zone.
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.
