One-hour closures expected on I-17 in both directions between midnight and 1 a.m.
Camp Verde AZ (August 6, 2013) – Overnight work on the Interstate 17 climbing lane project south of Camp Verde requires a one-hour closure in both directions several nights this week between midnight and 1 a.m.
The work will occur tonight; Tuesday, August 6; and Thursday, August 8 as crews continue blasting along the highway.
Each night, the closure will be from midnight to 1 a.m. Northbound I-17 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.
During this construction project, bicyclists are not permitted through the project work zone at any time, as the shoulders along I-17 are closed. Bicyclists can bypass the work zone via State Route 169 for northbound riders or State Route 260 for southbound riders.
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. Monday night through Friday morning.
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.
