More Rock Blasting on I-17 This Week
More rock blasting takes place this week along I-17 between Sunset Point and Bumblebee Road. This is part of the I-17 improvement project. The interstate will be closed in both directions from 10 to 11 p.m. through Thursday. The southbound lane will also be narrowed to one lane from 11 p.m. until 4 a.m. That’s not the only stretch of southbound I-17 to have lane restrictions this week. The interstate between Black Canyon City and New River Road will have alternating lane closures from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Saturday in order for road crews to lay down temporary striping, and install warning signs and concrete barriers.
