The final work to repave a six-mile segment of northbound Interstate 17 just north of State Route 179 (Sedona turnoff) will require lane restrictions between 6 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
The $5 million pavement improvement project began last year and will be completed this week after crews complete the final lane striping and install reflective pavement markers. Crews previously completed repaving the roadway from the Stoneman Lake traffic interchange to the Coconino County line (mileposts 206-212).
The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph through the work zone. Motorists are advised to pay close attention to signage and observe posted speed limits which will be reduced through the work zone.
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.
