ADOT to conduct traffic switch as US 93 widening project hits milestone

Project expected to be completed this fall

PHOENIX – With the completion of new lanes for the US 93 widening project north of Wikieup, the Arizona Department of Transportation will conduct a traffic switch Monday, Sept. 21 so crews can work on rebuilding the existing southbound lanes.

The traffic switch will occur at 8 a.m. Monday, Sept. 21, between mileposts 116 and 119. Drivers in the area should expect a brief delay while crews switch all traffic to the new northbound lanes.

The upgrade to a four-lane divided highway improves traffic flow, supports the movement of freight and enhances safety through this heavily traveled corridor.

Work on the project began in the spring of 2019. In addition to converting US 93 into a four-lane divided highway, the project includes building concrete box culverts, two box bridges and installing pipe culverts, guardrail and fencing.

The new section of 3-mile divided highway is expected to be completed in the fall.
