-adotIn a continuous effort to improve pavement conditions along Interstate 40, the Arizona Department of Transportation announces two separate roadway construction projects this spring in Mohave County.

Crews have started preparation to pave an eight-mile stretch of I-40 about 13 miles east of Kingman. The work will take place from the Silver Spring Traffic Interchange (Exit 79) to the Round Valley Traffic Interchange (Exit 71).

The $4.6 million project is scheduled to be completed this summer.

The second project is located approximately 30 miles east of Kingman at the Willow Creek Bridges (mileposts 83 to 86). The $5.8 million project will include bridge deck replacements, new barrier and approach slabs. Intermittent left and right lane closures are in place weekdays to prepare for the bridge work. This project will be completed this winter.

The work will require daily lane closures from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Friday through noon.

While traveling through the work zones, motorists are reminded to slow down, use caution, be alert and prepared for construction equipment and personnel.
