I-40 lane restrictions west of Ash Fork for pavement repairs

August 2, 2023

Work starts Aug. 3 and continues Monday-Thursday through Aug. 17

PHOENIX – Both directions of Interstate 40 will be reduced to one lane between Seligman and Ash Fork during daylight hours Monday to Thursday starting Thursday, Aug. 3, and ending Thursday, Aug. 17, as an Arizona Department of Transportation project removes and replaces surface pavement. 

The lane restrictions, a 55 mph speed limit and a width restriction of 14.5 feet will be in place from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday between mileposts 123 and 146. 

ADOT has committed $90.5 million to pavement repair projects, most of them in northern Arizona, after the record-setting winter. Governor Hobbs and the state Legislature also have allocated $54 million for additional pavement improvement projects in rural Arizona. A website at azdot.gov/PavingRepairs details these Statewide Critical Pavement Repair Projects.

Meanwhile, another ADOT project will reduce westbound I-40 to one lane from milepost 108 to milepost 86, between Seligman and US 93, from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting Tuesday, Aug. 8, and ending Thursday, Aug. 11. Crews will be applying a sealant to extend the life of the pavement. The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph in the work zone and there will be a width restriction of 14 feet. 

Motorists should slow down in work zones and give workers plenty of space.
