Interstate 19 work to restore recovery zone continues this week south of Tucson


Work to restore a 30-foot recovery zone adjacent to Interstate 19 travel lanes will continue this week with daily restrictions in both directions through Saturday, March 11.


Crews will work between Pima Mine Road (milepost 49/kilometer post 81) and San Xavier Road (milepost 57/kilometer post 95).


Northbound I-19 will be reduced to one lane from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day, while southbound I-19 will be reduced to one lane from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. each day. The lane closures required for the work will be two miles in length.


Motorists should give themselves additional travel time during this work.


The work is part of a project to restore a prescribed 30-foot area adjacent to all travel lanes that is designed to provide motorists who exit the roadway an opportunity to stop or control their vehicles before striking objects such as trees and shrubs.

The Arizona Department of Transportation will provide updated information about this project as information becomes available.

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.
