7/29/2013 3:57:00 PM Overnight closures on I-17 at Camp Verde continue
Overnight work on the Interstate 17 climbing lane project south of Camp Verde requires two, one-hour closures in both directions several nights this week between midnight and 3 a.m.
The work will occur overnight tomorrow night; Tuesday, July 30; and Wednesday, July 31 as crews continue blasting along the highway.
Each night, the first closure will be from midnight to 1 a.m. and the second closure will be 2 a.m. to 3 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.
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. 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.
