Pavement-improvement project on State Route 347 in Pinal County begins Tuesday, May 1.
Motorists should expect delays and plan ahead on weekdays
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will begin a pavement-rehabilitation project on State Route 347 (Maricopa Road) between Papago and Edison roads. The $2.5 million project includes removing the existing top-asphalt layer and repaving the roadway with new asphalt. In addition, new pavement markers and updated signage will be included in the project. The project is expected to last about two months and is anticipated to be completed in July.
Crews will be paving SR 347 through the month of May. In early July, crews will add final striping to the roadway. The construction schedule is subject to change due to a variety of reasons, including weather, material availability and mechanical difficulties. ADOT advises drivers to proceed through or near work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
What to Expect During Construction
- Work hours will be from 6 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Sunday through Thursday
- SR 347 will be narrowed to one lane in order to conduct the work safely
- Construction crews will be on-site to control traffic at either end of the work zone
- Please allow extra time if traveling during work hours as delays can be expected
Business access will be maintained whenever possible. However, it will be necessary to pave in front of business entrances along SR 347, resulting in intermittent closures. Drivers should use alternative business entrances, if possible.
