Work on I-40 winds down

Motorists can expect delays east of Kingman

KINGMAN - Motorists who routinely travel Interstate 40 just east of Kingman can take comfort in knowing the 15-mile paving project nears its completion, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

First, however, crews have to pave the roadway sections near Blake Ranch Road and DW Ranch Road today through Friday, with the 14-hour workday beginning at 4 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m.

While the project runs between mileposts 57 to halfway between mileposts 71 and 72 - Rattlesnake Wash and the U.S. 93 junction - the area that will be affected this week is between exits 60 and 66.

Today through Wednesday, crews will pave the east- and westbound lanes near the Blake Ranch Road exit. Thursday and Friday's schedule involves paving first the westbound lane and concluding with paving the eastbound lane.

ADOT cautions motorists to be prepared for brief delays, intermittent lane closures and occasional on- and off-ramp closures.

The overall project is scheduled for completion later this fall.
