Traffic Alerts - SR 347 and Old Maricopa Intersection

Left-turn restriction at SR 347 and Old Maricopa Road
begins June 6

Drivers who travel State Route 347 north of the city of Maricopa should plan for the following restrictions as the Arizona Department of Transportation continues work on an intersection improvement project at Old Maricopa Road. 

Beginning Monday, June 6, northbound traffic on SR 347 will shift onto the shoulder. Northbound SR 347 drivers will not be able to make a left turn onto Old Maricopa Road during this phase of construction.

  • DETOUR: Drivers can continue on SR 347 to northbound Interstate 10 and exit at Wild Horse Pass Road, to access Maricopa Road.

The northbound paving work is expected to continue through mid July. Restrictions and work schedules, including possible weekend work, are subject to change. 

Drivers should allow extra travel time and be prepared to slow down and merge safely when approaching and traveling through highway work zones.

Plan for lane restrictions at SR 347 and Old Maricopa Road beginning May 2

Drivers who travel State Route 347 north of the city of Maricopa should plan for upcoming restrictions and possible delays as the Arizona Department of Transportation works on an intersection improvement project at Old Maricopa Road. The project includes installation of new traffic signals and construction of north-  and southbound acceleration lanes for traffic entering SR 347 at Old Maricopa Road.

Restrictions will start along southbound SR 347. Beginning 3 a.m. Monday, May 2, southbound SR 347 will be narrowed to one lane. To ease impacts on weekday afternoon traffic, southbound SR 347 will be open to two lanes in the work zone from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.

These southbound lane restrictions are expected to continue through July. Northbound lane restrictions will be scheduled following substantial completion of the southbound paving work. Restrictions and work schedules, including possible weekend work, are subject to change. ADOT will provide information about scheduled weekend or night work as the project advances.
