Work to restore I-19 recovery zone to continue in Green Valley area through Friday, March 24

A safety project to restore a motorist recovery zone along Interstate 19 will continue in the Green Valley area through Friday, March 24, when the project is scheduled to be complete.

Crews are scheduled to remove potentially hazardous trees and other woody vegetation along the interstate between Duval Mine and Canoa Ranch roads. I-19 will be reduced to one lane daily until the project is complete, except for Sunday, March 19, when no work is scheduled.

Motorists should allow extra travel time between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. when crews are working south of Continental Road. When crews are working north of Continental Road, work hours will be from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The work is part of $904,000 highway safety improvement project to restore a 30-foot recovery zone adjacent to travel lanes. Recovery zones are designed to provide motorists who depart the highway an opportunity to stop or safely regain control of their vehicles.

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 email crevere@azdot.gov.
