This week and weekend, Arizona Department of Transportation crews are performing nighttime operations on southbound Interstate 17 at the McGuireville exit (milepost 293), using new high-tech injection technology to address needed repairs.
One lane of travel for southbound traffic will be closed in the construction zone from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. nightly on Wednesday through Friday, July 20-22, according to a news release. Work is also scheduled to occur at this location on from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 23 and 24.
Travelers should observe reduced speeds in the area, watch for crews and equipment in the work zone and allow for extra time for travel.
The foam injections, deep underneath the pavement, smooth out dips on Arizona highways. This method is more cost-efficient than ripping out old pavement, re-compacting the sub-grade, and placing new concrete or asphalt.
