The Arizona Department of Transportation is entering the final stages of an improvement project to repave 22 miles of State Route 74, east of the US 60 junction. Beginning Wednesday, April 3, crews will start paving the final layer of rubberized asphalt starting.
Drivers should be prepared for delays of up to one hour during peak travel times. Work hours will be from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Work will continue Tuesday through Thursday (no Friday or Monday work scheduled) until April 16. Crews will begin near Lake Pleasant and work toward US 60.
Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible as traffic will be restricted to one lane and guided through work zone with a pilot car.
The work is part of an ongoing 22-mile pavement preservation project that consists of removing a layer of the existing pavement, repaving the roadway and drainage improvements. No weekend or holiday work is scheduled on the project. Weather can affect a project schedule.
The $9 million pavement improvement project is scheduled for completion by early summer.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
