Road Work Ahead for Flagstaff Drivers

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

Motorists in the Flagstaff area should be aware of several detours to start the week. The  Arizona Department of Transportation has warned drivers of a few detours in the area as crews focus on repairing bridges on the Interstate-40/Interstate-17 interchange.

Starting Sunday, June 3, ADOT will close the northbound lanes of I-17 where it passes under I-40 from the hours of  8 p.m. to 5 a.m. The closures will continue through June 8 as crews set up support for the bridges. Drivers heading north on I-17 will need to take the I-40 exit east and turn around at the Butler Avenue exit on I-40 before going west to the Milton Road exit.

The following week, ADOT will shift focus toward the southbound lanes of I-17 under I-40. Starting June 10, these lanes will be closed every night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. until June 15.

Drivers heading south on I-17 will need to take I-40 west and turn around at the Flagstaff Ranch Road exit. They will then be able to head back east to the I-17 south exit.

This is all part of a $10 million repair project that encompasses new I-40 bridge decks in both directions over I-17 and Belulah Boulevard. The project will also fix drainage on the bridge decks and add new guardrails to the area.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
