Statewide Critical Pavement Repair Projects

Statewide Critical Pavement Repair Projects

Contents

Overview

The record amount of snow and rain that many parts of northern Arizona received during the winter of 2022-2023 created ideal conditions for worn sections of pavement and potholes to form, particularly in Arizona’s higher elevations.

To address this problem, ADOT completed critical pavement repairs on more than 300 miles of state highways since June 2023. First, ADOT reallocated $50.5 million of fiscal year 2023 funds to make immediate pavement repairs at 23 locations across the state. Furthermore, ADOT reallocated another $40 million for highway pavement repairs at eight additional locations across the state in fiscal year 2024 as part of the FY24-28 Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction Program, which was approved by the State Transportation Board.

Project Elements

The pavement repair work consists of removing the existing top layer of pavement and replacing it with an asphalt overlay to improve pavement conditions and the driving surface for vehicles. Work has been completed in spot locations along these highways in stretches of several miles: I‐10, I‐17, I‐40, US 60, SR 77, SR 87 and SR 260. Upcoming work will be done on stretches of I-10 and US 93.

What to Expect During Construction

  • Work along each segment of a highway corridor is expected to take approximately 2-4 weeks, depending on the location.

  • Drivers should plan for lane restrictions and reduced speed limits while the pavement work is completed. Plan extra travel time if work is occurring along your planned route.

  • A minimum of one lane of traffic will be maintained throughout the work zones on two-lane highways and one lane in each direction on interstates.

Schedules are subject to change because of weather or other unforeseen factors. Remember to slow down and use caution around construction workers and equipment.
