Construction alert: Be aware of these I-40 projects

Some lane closures will take place

KINGMAN - Crews are scheduled to apply permanent lane striping and raised pavement markers starting Monday on the newly paved 15-mile stretch of I-40 east of Kingman, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The paving between mileposts 57 and 71.5 was completed last fall. Work on the lane striping is expected to last through May 1.

The work is scheduled from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. Intermittent lane closures will be necessary for crews to complete this work.

Work will begin westbound at Blake Ranch Road (Exit 66), and then loop to the eastbound lanes beginning April 20.

Willow Creek Bridge

ADOT is scheduled to begin a bridge improvement project on Monday at Willow Creek Bridge No. 2 (mileposts 82 to 83), approximately 12 miles east of the I-40 and U.S. 93 traffic junction. The work will require crews to close one eastbound travel lane through May.

Working hours are 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The speed limit will be reduced, and motorists should be alert for construction vehicles in the work zone.

The $268,000 project will include extending retaining walls, repairing girders and placing a new overlay on the bridge deck surface. Work is expected to be finished in June.

Seligman project

Work to contain and prevent rock-fall hazards on Interstate 40 in Seligman (milepost 123) is under way. In order for the construction crew to safely access and stabilize the hill slopes, the eastbound left lane will be closed through late April.

Work is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Motorists should be prepared to slow down and proceed through the work zone with caution.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
