I-17 south of Camp Verde slated for 3 weeks of nighttime closures during rock blasting work
The Daily Courier

Beginning today, overnight rock blasting along Interstate 17 near Camp Verde will cause intermittent highway closures. A news release from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) announced that motorists traveling on I-17 south of Camp Verde between midnight and 3 a.m. during the next three weeks should plan ahead and allow extra travel time.

Construction work on a climbing lane project will require a pair of one-hour closures in both directions on I-17 early Thursday morning, and then intermittently over the next three weeks, Monday through Thursday, the ADOT release stated.

The first closure will take place from midnight to 1 a.m., and the second closure will occur between 2 and 3 a.m., Thursday. Traffic on northbound I-17 will be stopped at Highway 169, and southbound I-17 traffic will be stopped at the General Crook Trail until the area is reopened.

In addition to the full closures, drivers can expect single-lane restrictions in both directions through the work zone between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday night through Friday morning. Drivers on northbound I-17 should be alerted to a pilot car in the work zone to safely guide traffic between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. nightly.

Also, a site in the median of I-17 south of Highway 169 has been designated to use for excess materials removed from the project, which will require I-17 to be narrowed overnight to one lane in each direction at mileposts 276-277, as crews enter and exit the highway between 8 p.m. and noon Monday through Friday.

The work zone will be clearly marked with temporary signs and barricade, according to the news release.

"ADOT advises 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," the release stated.
