I-10 pavement improvement project underway between Riggs Road and the Gila River Bridges

Work and mostly overnight lane restrictions scheduled until July

I-10 Pavement Improvement Project at Riggs RoadPHOENIX–The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising motorists to plan ahead and expect mostly overnight lane restrictions as construction crews improve six miles of east- and westbound Interstate 10 between Riggs Road and the Gila River bridges in Maricopa and Pinal counties. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and driving conditions on the existing roadway and extend the life of the pavement. 

Some project elements include: 

  • Pavement improvements will be made along both directions of I-10.
  • The work includes removal of the existing top layer of pavement (approximately 2-1/2 inches) and replacing it with a new layer of asphalt pavement. 
  • Crews also will replace guardrail and pavement markings.

Construction began earlier this month and is scheduled for completion in July, barring weather conditions or other unforeseen situations.
