I-40: Second Mesa – Joseph City

This project has been paused due to winter weather conditions and
will resume in spring 2023.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is improving the roadway along a 9-mile stretch of Interstate 40 east of Winslow between mileposts 259 – 268 in Navajo County.  This Pavement Life Extension project is being funded by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).

The project includes removing the existing asphalt and replacing it with new pavement, and restriping the roadway.

The paving work is scheduled to begin this summer and final completion is anticipated in the fall of 2022.

What to expect:

While paving work is underway, motorists will encounter daytime lane restrictions. Throughout the paving work, a minimum of one lane of traffic will be maintained. ADOT advises drivers to plan for possible delays while the work is underway.
