Plan for daytime lane closures on State Route 89 north of the town of Paulden starting May 17

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for alternating lane closures on north- and southbound State Route 89 north of the town of Paulden from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. beginning Monday, May 17, through Thursday, May 20.

Motorists should expect delays of up to 30 minutes while the following restrictions are in place:

SR 89 will be narrowed to one lane only with alternating north- and southbound travel between mileposts 340 and 343.
Flaggers and a pilot car will direct drivers through the work zone.

The closures are needed for maintenance crews to apply a layer of asphaltic concrete to the roadway, which protects and extends the life of the pavement.

ADOT advises drivers to slow down and use caution around personnel and equipment while pavement repairs are underway.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.
