Interstate 10 Pavement Improvement Project: Gila River Bridge to State Route 587

I-10 PIP Gila Rive Bridge mapThe Arizona Department of Transportation is working to improve the pavement on three miles of Interstate 10 in Pinal County within the Gila River Indian Reservation. Work will occur from east of the Gila River Bridge to east of the State Route 587 traffic interchange. The project began in mid-August with completion anticipated in spring 2018. This project is scheduled for winter shutdown on Nov. 17, 2017, and is scheduled to begin again in spring 2018 when temperatures are conducive to rubberized-asphalt paving.

Through November 2017, work  is scheduled to occur Sunday through Thursday nights on east- and westbound I-10, and on the ramps at the SR 587 traffic interchange. On I-10, work will impact only one direction of travel at a time.

The project includes removing the existing asphalt and replacing it with smooth, durable rubberized asphalt; installing new guardrail; installing pavement markings; seeding; and other work.

What to expect:

  • I-10 will be narrowed to one lane in one direction at a time in the work zone;
  • The on- and off-ramps at SR 587 will be closed intermittently; drivers can use SR 387 or Riggs Road as alternates;
  • Slow traffic and delays are possible, so allow extra travel time.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. If you would like to be notified via email when traffic alerts are issued, please subscribe to the I-10 Projects email notification.
