Motorists should expect brief delays during the daytime work
A roadway improvement project began this week at the first of several locations across Mohave County. Work on a section of the Oatman Highway (milepost 0.5) near Topock, which will include shoulder improvements and new lane striping, is scheduled through Monday (Jan. 11), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Intermittent lane closures will be necessary weekdays from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Flaggers will be assisting with traffic control and motorists should be prepared for brief delays of up to 15 minutes. The speed limit will be reduced and drivers should be alert for construction workers and equipment.
Traffic alerts will be issued with upcoming roadway improvements at the following locations: Diamond Bar Road from Stockton Hill Road to Pierce Ferry Road (shoulder rumble strips and lane striping) and at London Bridge Road from Chenoweth Drive to Retail Centre Blvd. (widening existing pavement).
The $843,000 Mohave County project, expected to be completed in May 2016, is being administered by ADOT.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
