Prescott AZ (June 28, 2012) – The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin work to repave nine miles of Interstate 17 between Middle Verde Road in Camp Verde and State Route 179 (Sedona turnoff) on Sunday evening, July 1.
The $4.2 million project on I-17 (mileposts 290-299) will include the removal of a layer of the existing pavement, repaving the roadway, guardrail replacement and bridge repair.
Work next week will be limited to guardrail replacement on northbound I-17 and a pavement test strip at the southbound McGuireville rest area. No work will take place on the Fourth of July holiday.
