Expect delays on I-40 because of construction

KINGMAN - Motorists along Interstate 40 can expect traffic delays due to several highway construction projects between Kingman and Flagstaff, the Arizona Department of Transportation said Wednesday.

ADOT has 12 paving projects under way that are part of the five-year plan to improve Arizona's 365-mile stretch of I-40, the third-longest interstate in the nation and one of Arizona's most heavily used highways for commercial vehicles.

The transportation department is spending more than $130 million to resurface about 135 miles of I-40, which crosses five counties in northern Arizona.

Most recently, ADOT crews started a $13.6 million project to upgrade 15 miles between Rattlesnake Wash east of Kingman and U.S. Highway 93 junction. Completion is expected in the fall.

Just east of there is more resurfacing from Ash Fork to Williams that should be finished this summer.

The $10.5 million project was started last year, but was shut down for the winter. Workers are also rehabilitating a bridge in the area.

Through early August, westbound I-40 west of Parks may have up to 30-minute delays as crews clear the roadway of fallen rocks. The $1.6 million rockfall containment includes rock excavation and scaling, installing catch netting and widening the rock ditch.

"And guess where the money came from-the AZ Dept of Trans which gets most of its money from... Guess where?

The US Government! Exactly the same place that everyone hates soooo much."

Since it is part of the NATIONAL Highway System, don't you think the NATIONAL government should be paying for the majority of it?

I don't think "everyone" hates the US Government at all. Of course there are a few that hate all Governments big or small.

And where do you think the US Government got the money? They took it at gun point from the people. And the cruelest tax is inflation when the government prints money with no value.

The 25cent hamburger is now $8-10 and all but that 25cents is tax.

Isn't this the construction all of our wonderful citizens have been screaming about for years on Interstate 40?

Yes, it is. And guess where the money came from-the AZ Dept of Trans which gets most of its money from... Guess where?

The US Government! Exactly the same place that everyone hates soooo much.

But, we all love those freebies when it comes towards our own back yard, don't we?
