Roadwork on I-17 continues next week

As work continues on Interstate 17 north of Phoenix for fiber-optic cable installation and the Interstate 17 Improvement Project between Anthem Way and Sunset Point, motorists should expect lane and shoulder closures in the week ahead. The Arizona Department of Transportation urges motorists to slow down, be prepared to merge into the open lane and use caution around construction personnel and equipment while the following lane and shoulder closures are in place:

  • Northbound I-17 will be narrowed to one lane (left lane closed) at the New River bridge (south of milepost 232) overnight from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Monday night, May 2, to Thursday morning, May 5. 
  • Northbound I-17 will be narrowed to one lane (left lane closed) north of Table Mesa Road (mileposts  236-238) overnight from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Wednesday night, May 4, to Friday morning, May 6.
  • Southbound I-17 will be narrowed to one lane (left lane closed) at Black Canyon City (milepost 242) overnight from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Wednesday night, May 4, to Friday morning, May 6.

    • A vehicle-width limit of 14 feet will be in place.

ADOT is installing high-speed fiber optic infrastructure along 67 miles of I-17 between the McGuireville Rest Area (north of Camp Verde) and Anthem Way. Work is expected to continue through mid-2022, and will proceed along I-17 in segments of several miles per week. Crews are installing conduit and pull-box systems, fiber optic cables, node buildings and load centers. Learn more on the project website or call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530.

The long-awaited I-17 Improvement Project between Anthem Way and Sunset Point includes widening 15 miles of north- and southbound I-17 between Anthem Way and Black Canyon City; replacing two bridges and widening 10 others; and constructing approximately 8 miles of flex lanes between Black Canyon City and Sunset Point. ADOT anticipates construction will begin later this year and continue for about three years. Learn more at improvingi17.com or call the project information line at 1.877.476.1717.
