Lane restrictions begin on the Florence-Kelvin Highway between State Route 177, State Route 79 starting Feb. 27

Motorists on the Florence-Kelvin Highway between State Route 177 and State Route 79 will encounter lane restrictions near the Kelvin Bridge starting Tuesday, Feb. 27. Crews will realign the highway near the Gila River.

Motorists will need to use a short detour, which requires a very tight turn.

Vehicles wider than 12 feet and longer than 35 feet, such as semis with trailers and trucks pulling RVs, should use SR 79, US 60 and SR 177 as an alternate route.

Work is scheduled to run through May 2018.

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

For questions and comments, call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For real-time highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT's Traveler Information Site at, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511, except while driving.
