Posted 7:37 AM 5/14/2012 : Cone Zone 5/14: I-10 & SR 82
UPDATE: State Route 90 widening near Interstate 10 rescheduled to begin Monday
First phase will require all SR 90 traffic to share current eastbound lanes
As construction continues on the Interstate 10/State Route 90 improvement project, crews will begin working on widening State Route 90 to seven lanes near the interchange with Interstate 10 in Benson Monday (May 14).
The Arizona Department of Transportation will close the westbound lanes of SR 90 immediately north of the traffic signal at Village Loop Drive at 7 a.m. Monday for a three-month period when traffic in both directions will be routed to use the current eastbound lanes to travel through the project area.
During this time, ADOT crews will reconstruct the westbound lanes and construct a raised median between I-10 and Village Loop Drive. New storm drains and street lighting will also be included in the project.
While the westbound lanes are being reconstructed, access to businesses east of the highway at St. Andrews Road will be closed. Access to those businesses will be available from Village Loop Drive. Also during this phase of the widening project, the Caverns Drive exit from businesses west of the highway will be restricted to right turns only. Although SR 90 is designated as an east-west route, the highway runs north and south in the Benson area.
The work is part of ADOT's $27.6 million project that includes construction of new I-10 overpasses at SR 90, and realignment of a section of curving interstate west of the exit.
When the first phase of the SR 90 widening is complete, traffic in both directions will be switched to use the newly constructed westbound lanes and crews will begin work on the eastbound lanes.
ADOT will continue to provide information on this project, which is scheduled for completion in 2013.
Drivers are advised to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
UPDATE: Overnight bridge work scheduled on State Route 82 in Nogales Monday
The Arizona Department of Transportation will be closing eastbound and westbound State Route 82 in Nogales from 6 p.m. Monday (May 14) to 6 a.m. Tuesday (May 15) to complete the work on the bridge deck between Grand Avenue and Morley Avenue.
What to Expect:
• Eastbound State Route 82 will be closed at Grand Avenue. Traffic will be detoured through Grand Avenue, left on Morley Avenue and back on to eastbound State Route 82.
• Westbound State Route 82 will be closed at Morley Avenue. Traffic will be detoured through Morley Avenue, right on Grand Avenue and back on to westbound State Route 82.
Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
