Watch for delays if you’ll be traveling on I-17 this week. ADOT crews are scheduled to pave Table Mesa Road at the I-17 overpass from 7 am to 5 pm today through Thursday. The paving operations will require 1 lane to be closed during work hours and drivers will be guided through the work zone with flaggers. This work at the bridge is part of a larger project currently underway on I-17 that includes pavement resurfacing, guardrail improvements and railing replacement on 8 bridges. ADOT crews are also scheduled to work overnight from 6 Thursday night to 6:30 Friday morning.
