Traffic Alert: ADOT plans half-hour closure on I-17 Wednesday night
Blasting operations near Big Bug Creek will require a 30-minute closure of northbound and southbound traffic on Interstate 17 Wednesday night.
According to a news release from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), the closure will take place at 11 p.m. Wednesday, and will include the closure of the on-ramp from Highway 69 to southbound I-17.
The closure will allow for blasting work that is a part of the $50 million reconstruction of the Cordes Junction interchange at I-17 and Highway 69.
The news release states that the work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage.
ADOT is advising drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
