Plan extra time for travel
Allow extra time if you’ll be traveling on Highway 89A and I-17. ADOT crews will be applying asphalt to repair roadway conditions following an active winter storm season. Highway 89A will be reduced to 1 lane near Grasshopper Point to the Pine Flats Campground from 8 am to 2 pm today through Friday. Flaggers will be on scene to direct traffic through the work zone. Meanwhile, paving work is taking place on I-17 between New River and Coldwater Roads. From 6:30 tonight to 6 tomorrow morning, the north and southbound I-17 off ramps at Rock Springs Road will be closed, so drivers will need to use Coldwater Road as an alternate route. This work is part of a nearly 11 million dollar project that includes the removal of a layer of the existing pavement and application of new asphalt. This project is scheduled to be finished by this summer.
