ADOT conducting paving project on I-17 near Cordes Junction next week

Drivers should expect delays, plan extra travel time

PHOENIX – Arizona Department of Transportation crews will be doing pavement preservation along a nearly 20-mile stretch of Interstate 17 near Cordes Junction early next week.

The project will require alternating lane closures in each direction along the interstate between Crown King and State Route 169. Work will take place on Monday, Oct. 30, and Tuesday, Oct. 31, between 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Drivers heading through the area should budget extra travel time and expect delays while being guided through the alternating lane closures. The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph.
