Interstate 10 / West Quartzsite Traffic Interchange Improvements

QuartzsiteThe Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration have identified the need to make spot improvements at the Interstate 10/Quartzsite Boulevard interchange (Exit 17) in Quartzsite, approximately 22 miles east of the Arizona/California state line. The project will improve intersection operations at the on and off ramps.

The $2.2 million project is scheduled to begin in April 2017, with estimated completion in fall 2017. Work consists of widening the existing cross road, extending drainage pipes, installing bridge barrier and lane striping.

Traffic Impacts

Drivers should expect lane and shoulder closures on Quartzsite Boulevard; lane closures on Interstate 10 during bridge-rail demolition; and ramp closures during paving operations. The East Quartzsite traffic interchange at Exit 19 (milepost 19.5) is the alternate route while work is underway. Plan for construction-related delays and proceed with caution through the active work zone.
