KINGMAN – A portion of Route 66 near Peach Springs will be under construction with lane restrictions on Monday, the Arizona Department of Transportation reported.

Motorists should plan for delays of up to 15 minutes as ADOT starts a 19-mile pavement improvement project from Hualapai Way to Pica Camp Road.

While paving occurs, the roadway will be narrowed to one lane only, and a pilot car will guide drivers through the work zone.

What to expect:

• Weekday work hours from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

• Paving will take place from Monday through Aug. 31, and from Sept. 6-14.

• Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment.

Crews are expected to apply the final lane striping in mid-September, wrapping up work on the $1.5 million project. Schedules are subject to weather and other factors. For real-time conditions, go to www.az511.gov or follow ADOT on Twitter @ArizonaDOT (except while driving).
