The Arizona Department of Transportation has ramp closures and lane restrictions planned next week on Interstate 10 between Quartzsite and the California state line. They’ll start Monday, Oct. 7 and run through Thursday, Oct. 10. ADOT is advising drivers to plan ahead and allow for extra travel time.
Maintenance crews are scheduled to apply oil-based sealant on the road for pavement preservation. The work is part of multiple pavement preservation projects on highways across the state.
The following restrictions will occur from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning Monday, Oct. 7, and ending Thursday, Oct. 10.
- I-10 will be narrowed to one lane in both directions between the California state line and milepost 15.
- Motorists should anticipate a 5-mile lane restriction while crews progress through the work zone.
- A 12-foot vehicle width restriction will be in place.
- The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph.
- Flaggers will direct motorists through the work zone.
On Thursday, Oct. 10, the following west- and eastbound I-10 off- and on-ramps will close intermittently between 5 a.m. and 6 p.m.
- Ehrenberg to Parker (Exit 1)
- Ehrenberg Port of Entry (weigh station) off-ramps
- Ehrenberg Rest Area (milepost 4.45)
- Tom Wells Road (Exit 5)
- Dome Rock Road (Exit 11)
Alternate routes include using the preceding I-8 on-ramp or exit in the work zone. Motorists should allow extra travel time and plan for possible delays while work is underway.
