Statewide Critical Pavement Repair Projects

Statewide Critical Pavement Repair Projects



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


Snow on US 191

To address this problem, ADOT has allocated $50.5 million to make immediate pavement repairs at 23 locations, most of which are in northern Arizona. Furthermore, ADOT reallocated another $40 million in highway pavement repairs for fiscal year 2024, which starts July 1, 2023, as part of the FY24-28 Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction Program. The State Transportation Board approved the Five-Year Program at its June 16 meeting.

In addition to this reallocated funding, Governor Hobbs and the Arizona State Legislature approved the FY24 state budget that includes $54 million for pavement repairs in rural parts of Arizona. Once these projects are determined and scheduled, they will be added to this page.


Project Elements

The pavement repair work will consist of removing and replacing damaged surface pavement on sections of I‐10, I‐17, I‐40, US 60, SR 77, SR 87, SR 260 and US 93.

The 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. The work will be done in spot locations along these highways in stretches of several miles.

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.
