What to expect during construction

During construction, lane restrictions will be needed for crews to safely work on the roadway. As a result, drivers should expect slower traffic and delays. Details regarding traffic restrictions will be updated and posted on this project webpage prior to the start of work.

ADOT reminds drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment. 

Project schedule

Construction work will begin in October and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022. 

Schedule subject to change based on weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Current restrictions and closures

ADOT advises drivers to plan ahead for possible delays while the following traffic restrictions will be in place:

  • North- and southbound US 191 will be narrowed to one lane only with alternating travel weekdays in November 2021 and continuing through the end of 2022. 
  • Traffic will be controlled by a temporary traffic control signal.   
  • Drivers need to be prepared to slow down and stop in the work zone and use caution around construction personnel and equipment while the restrictions are in place.
