Plan extra travel time on US 93 next week due to pavement maintenance work

Highway narrowed to one lane south of Wikieup

PHOENIX – Travelers driving between Kingman and Wickenburg will need to plan extra travel time as the Arizona Department of Transportation will be conducting pavement maintenance work on US 93 south of Wikieup from Monday, Aug. 31 through Thursday, Sept. 3.

Work will take place from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily between the Santa Maria Bridge and Alamo Road, which includes mileposts 162 to 180. US 93 will be narrowed to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car leading traffic through the work zone. Crews will only be working in sections of a few miles a day.

Drivers should expect delays of about 20 minutes and move slowly through the work zone.

Workers will be doing pavement maintenance work again on Tuesday, Sept. 8 from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. between Alamo Road and the State Route 71 junction. US 93 will be narrowed to one lane in that area with a flagging operation to guide traffic through the work zone.

Crews will be placing a sealant on the existing asphalt, which helps protect and extend the life of the roadway.
