ALERT: Pavement improvement work scheduled overnight on Interstate 10 in Pinal County

Expect slow travel on Gila River Indian Community east of metro-Phoenix region

Interstate 10 in Pinal County will be restricted overnight, as the Arizona Department of Transportation continues a fog-sealing operation between State Route 587 and the Gila River Bridge.

I-10 will be narrowed to one lane in both directions throughout the 3-mile work zone.

The westbound restriction is scheduled from 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, to 5 a.m. Thursday, June 7.

The eastbound restriction is scheduled from 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, to 5 a.m. Thursday, June 7.

This Friday, June 8, grading work is scheduled to occur adjacent to the I-10 and State Route 587 interchange between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. No restrictions are scheduled on the roadway or the ramps; however, ADOT advises drivers to slow down and use caution around construction personnel and equipment near the roadway.

Final lane striping is scheduled to occur during overnight hours Sunday, June 10, through Wednesday, June 13. The following restrictions are scheduled to be in place between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. all four nights:

East- and westbound I-10 will be narrowed to one lane between the Gila River Bridge and SR 587. Traffic will be diverted onto the outside shoulders so crews can stripe the lanes and install raised pavement markings.

Also during this timeframe, the I-10 and SR 587 on- and off-ramps will be striped, and raised pavement markings will be installed. Drivers should plan for lane restrictions and obey posted speed limits.

Work is occurring in conjunction with the I-10 pavement-improvement on the Gila River Indian Community. When complete, motorists will enjoy a layer of smooth rubberized asphalt. The project began in August and is scheduled for completion later this month. Learn more on the project webpage.
