District-wide Pavement Preservation Projects - North East

The Arizona Department of Transportation has allocated $36 million for multiple pavement preservation projects on highways across the state during the fiscal year, which began July 1 and ends on June 30. 

The goal is to undertake preventative-maintenance projects so roadways remain in good condition vs. undertaking much more costly and impactful repair projects later - after the pavement has deteriorated. 

Investing in preventative-maintenance projects directly aligns with ADOT’s Long Range Transportation Plan goal of maintaining, preserving and extending the service life of existing state transportation system infrastructure.

The projects are a mix of chip seals, fog seals and crack seals which protect and extend pavement life. Expect to see crews at work in different parts of the state during different times of the year based on outside air temperatures and other weather conditions that are appropriate for the type of treatment. ADOT will provide more specific information about project schedules and potential impacts as it becomes available.

Each project is expected to last one to four months. Approximate locations are included where feasible. ADOT will provide more specific information about each individual project when work dates are confirmed, if needed.
