The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers who travel Interstate 40 in Flagstaff to continue planning for ongoing lane restrictions from the junction with I-17 to Country Club Drive through the end of July.

The following overnight restrictions will occur from June 15-18:

• Eastbound I-40 will be narrowed to one lane in work areas between Lone Tree Road (milepost 196) and Country Club Drive (milepost 201).

• The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph.

• A 16-foot vehicle-width restriction will be in place.

Information on travel restrictions later in June and July will be released to the public once the scheduled work and traffic-control plans are finalized.

The pavement preservation work is part of the on-going project to improve the roadway and traffic interchanges along a 10-mile stretch of I-40 between Interstate 17 and Walnut Canyon Road.

Since 2016, ADOT has replaced about 90 miles of pavement and repaired, upgraded or replaced 35 bridges along I-40.
