Road work on I-17 likely to slow traffic down for a time

As work continues on Interstate 17 south of Flagstaff for fiber-optic cable installation, motorists should plan for a lane closure 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 closure is in place:


Northbound I-17

Northbound I-17 will be narrowed to one lane (right lane closed) from General Crook Trail near Camp Verde to State Route 260 (mileposts 285-288) daily from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Monday morning, June 27, to Thursday evening, June 30. 


  • A vehicle-width limit of 16 feet will be in place.
  • The speed limit will be reduced in the work zones.
