Construction continues on I-40


Motorists who travel under Interstate 40 on Eastern Avenue will have to use a detour for most of the month as crews continue bridge improvement work.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the project begins Monday and will continue through June 27. Lane restrictions on Andy Devine Avenue will take place in both directions at its junction with the interstate throughout next week.

Crews are replacing the bridge deck over the BNSF railroad, which also runs under the interstate at Eastern Avenue, but it will be performed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. to mitigate traffic impacts.
