I-10 paving work extends to SR 83

Crews with the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) began extending paving Friday from westbound Interstate 10 to State Route 83.

These paving operations are mostly based east of Tucson and will last from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. On Wednesday, crews will end their work at 12 p.m. so that holiday travel can continue as normal for Thanksgiving.

Drivers using I-10 for their travels from Benson to Tucson will meet lane closures. The closures begin at milepost 288 and end at the traffic interchange of Exit 281 for SR 83.

In the restricted areas, the speed limit has been reduced to 45 miles per hour. Drivers can expect brief delays as they use the interstate. ADOT encourages motorists to drive cautiously, slowly and alertly when they pass through construction areas as well as personnel zones.

This paving project is just one phase of a project to completely repave an estimated 17 miles of I-10. The paving project, which is worth $15.1 million, reaches from Tucson to Benson, crossing above Davidson Canyon that is just 20 miles to the east of the city of Tucson.
