The Arizona Department of Transportation is making improvements to southbound Interstate 17 between McGuireville Traffic Interchange and General Crook Trail, totaling 4.05 miles.
This section of I-17 sees heavy vehicular use by interstate highway system users and local communities.
ADOT is committed to minimizing impacts to motorists while performing these roadway improvements.
This work includes ramp closures to Interstate 17, which will require traffic detours.
On Tuesday, Oct. 14, between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m., the southbound I-17 exit ramp at Middle Verde Road TI (Exit 289) will be closed while crews prepare for paving operations. I-17 southbound traffic can access Middle Verde Road by exiting at Camp Verde/ SR 260 TI (Exit 287) and following the well-marked detour using northbound I-17.
On Wednesday, Oct. 15, between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m., the southbound I-17 entrance ramp at Middle Verde Road will be closed while crews prepare for paving operations. Middle Verde Road traffic will be detoured to I-17 southbound through the McGuireville Traffic Interchange.
The Middle Verde entrance and exit ramps will remain milled until the week of Oct. 20, when crews are scheduled to return and pave the ramps. Motorists using the ramps will experience reduced speeds and rough road conditions while driving on the milled surface.
Ramp work is being performed in addition to the ongoing paving and guardrail installation work that will cause lane restrictions on I-17 southbound throughout the project.
All work will be performed between the hours of 6 p.m. and 7 a.m., to reduce commuter impact in known congestion areas.
Public questions and concerns are best addressed by calling the project hotline at 1-888-236-4374.
