PHOENIX – Weeknight lane restrictions on Interstate 10 in Casa Grande may continue for the next few months as Arizona Department of Transportation crews continue the early stages of a project to widen Interstate 10 in Pinal County.
This week, left lane restrictions will be in place in each direction overnight between Earley Road (milepost 196) and Interstate 8 (milepost 200) beginning each evening at 8 p.m. and continuing until no later than 7 a.m. the following morning. Restrictions begin Monday, May 14, and continue each night until 7 a.m. on Saturday, May 19.
Vehicles are limited to 12 feet in width during lane restrictions. Similar restrictions are possible for much of the summer.
Drivers on Jimmie Kerr Boulevard near I-10 also may experience delays. ADOT is building new bridges to carry I-10 over Jimmie Kerr. Although that work is taking place off the roadway, minor delays are possible as drivers slow in the work zone.
The project includes adding a new lane in each direction along the median side of the freeway, as well as new concrete barriers. Once the work is complete, along with another project about 10 miles away in Eloy, I-10 will have six lanes from Casa Grande to the east side of Tucson. Both projects are expected to be completed by early fall 2019.
The project will have no restrictions over Memorial Day weekend.
