Construction crews will continue paving along Interstate 10 west of Phoenix at 7 p.m. Sunday (May 13). Motorists traveling between California and Phoenix should plan ahead and expect delays during work hours. Overnight work hours will be from 7 p.m. to noon the following day.
What to expect between Sunday (May 13) and Sunday (May 20):
- Interstate 10 will be narrowed to one lane for approximately two miles between mileposts 52 and 63 between 7 p.m. and noon the next day for paving.
- Speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph in the work zone.
- Message boards and signs will advise drivers of restrictions and law enforcement officers will be on-site to enforce speed limits and control traffic.
This project is scheduled to be completed by July 2012.
ADOT advises drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, 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.
