ADOT project will remove surface asphalt from eastbound I-10 stretch in Tucson

Overnight restrictions start Saturday, Jan. 12, between Ruthrauff, Miracle Mile
January 09, 2019

PHOENIX – Tucson-area drivers can expect minor overnight delays on eastbound Interstate 10 beginning this weekend as crews remove the unraveling surface asphalt layer between Ruthrauff Road and Miracle Mile (State Route 77).

Work will begin Saturday, Jan. 12, and is expected to be completed by Saturday, Jan. 19. Lane restrictions will be in place from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. until the work is complete.

Eastbound I-10 will remain open throughout the work, as will the eastbound frontage road.

With the top asphalt layer milled off, this stretch of I-10 will have a concrete surface while the Arizona Department of Transportation evaluates longer-term options. Concrete pavement is common throughout the state highway system and is as safe to drive on as the rubberized asphalt being removed from the eastbound lanes.
