Delays expected along Interstate 15 for paving work north of Mesquite

Final paving on 13-mile stretch of I-15 will provide a smoother surface for motorists

LITTLEFIELD ‒ The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin the final phase of a pavement improvement project next week to upgrade a 13-mile segment of Interstate 15 from the Nevada state line to the Virgin River Gorge (mileposts 1-13) in northwest Arizona.

Crews will apply the top layer of asphalt to the pavement beginning Monday, May 9, and continuing through Thursday, May 26. No work will occur during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Motorists traveling through this area should be prepared for possible delays up to an hour Monday through Thursdayduring paving operations from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

One travel lane will remain open overnight in each direction.

When work on the $10.4 million project is completed in June, ADOT will have repaved the entire 29-mile-long Arizona corridor of I-15 in the last three years to provide a smoother surface for motorists. In 2013, ADOT finished an $11.6 million project to repave the stretch from the Virgin River Gorge to the Utah line (mileposts 13-29).

With limited alternate routes through this corridor, drivers should plan ahead, allow extra travel time, slow down and drive carefully through the work zone, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

To stay up to date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center ataz511.gov or call 511; outside of Arizona dial 1.888.411.ROAD (7623).
