ADOT Update – Paving work scheduled on westbound I-10 remainder of the week

Motorists traveling westbound on Interstate 10 east of Tucson will encounter travel restrictions the remainder of this week while the Arizona Department of Transportation continues paving operations.

Westbound I-10 will be reduced to one lane west of the Mescal Road/J-Six Ranch traffic interchange (Exit 297) daily from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 18) through Friday (Nov. 20). The speed limit in the project area (mileposts 292-296) will be reduced to 45 mph and brief delays can be expected.

The work is part of a $15.1 million project to repave approximately 17 miles of I-10 in both directions between Tucson and Benson. The project also includes replacement of the westbound I-10 bridge over Davidson Canyon, located 20 miles east of Tucson.

ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center at www.az511.gov or call 511.
