Work to improve 11-mile segment of SR 86 west of Tucson starts Tuesday


The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin work this week on a project to improve an 11-mile segment of State Route 86 (Ajo Way) between Fuller and Valencia roads, west of Tucson.

The $4.2 million project will consist of milling and repaving the two-lane highway from milepost 148 to milepost 159, including crack sealing and chip sealing the highway and resurfacing existing intersection turnouts. The project also includes guardrail work, replacing bridge railing, signing and striping.

Work is scheduled to begin Tuesday, Feb. 14, with survey work and repairing roadway joints, requiring daily lane closures from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for the next two weeks. A pilot vehicle will guide traffic in both directions through two-mile segments where the highway is reduced to one lane. Delays of 15 minutes can be expected.

Crews will work weekdays through mid-June 2017, when the project is scheduled to be complete.

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

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions and closures, but it’s possible that unscheduled impacts might occur because of weather or other factors. For the most current information about highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT’s Traveler Information Site at www.az511.gov, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511,except while driving.

For more information, please call C.T. Revere, ADOT senior community relations officer, at 520.705.3574 or emailcrevere@azdot.gov.
