ADOT crews starting pavement improvement projects.
If you travel overnight on Highway 69, expect delays. ADOT crews will start a pavement improvement project on 7 miles of 69 from Dewey-Humboldt to Prescott Valley. While this work is occurring, the roadway will be narrowed to 1 lane in each direction. Work hours are 8 pm to 6 am today through Thursday and next Sunday, June 18th to Thursday, June 22nd.

Motorists can still stop at the rest area near Cordes Junction, but services won’t be available while the power is out. The other ADOT rest area along I-17 between Phoenix and Flagstaff is in the town of McGuireville near Rimrock.
