Interstate 17 New River Rd to Coldwater Rd Pavement Preservation Project

Paving project on I-17 continues
Drivers should expect minimal delays at night during work hours

The Arizona Department of Transportation began a repaving project on Interstate 17 northbound and southbound between New River and Coldwater Roads (mileposts 232 to 245) in August, 2016.

Paving operations, guardrail installations, bridge work and other miscellaneous improvements are expected on I-17 through spring of 2017. 

Work hours are 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each night, Sunday through Thursday nights. Drivers can expect alternating lane restrictions through the work zone during work hours.

The $10.8 million project includes the removal of a layer of the existing pavement and application of a new layer of smooth, quiet rubberized asphalt. The project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2017.

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 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.
