Camp Verde AZ (November 12, 2013) – Overnight blasting work on Interstate 17 will require closures this week between 11:30 p.m. and 3:30 a.m. as part of the climbing lane project south of Camp Verde. The closures allow crews to safely perform blasting operations and clean up the roadway.
Closures scheduled for this week include:
Tuesday, Nov. 12: I-17 closed in both directions from 11:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m., 1 – 2 a.m. and again from 2:30 – 3:30 a.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 13 and Thursday, Nov. 14: I-17 closed in both directions from 11:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m.
Northbound I-17 traffic will be stopped at State Route 169, and southbound I-17 traffic will be stopped at General Crook Trail until the work is completed and the roadway is reopened.
In addition to the full closures, drivers can expect single-lane restrictions in both directions through the work zone between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. nightly through Friday morning.
During construction, bicyclists are not permitted through the project work zone as the shoulders along I-17 are closed.
The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage. ADOT advises drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
