ADOT reschedules I-10 project amid complaints

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that their Interstate-10 project has been put on hold following numerous complaints from drivers over the lack of signage and damages involving road tar on vehicles.

According to ADOT, they plan to reevaluate their procedures.

The "fresh oil" signs are still on the road but the big trucks are gone.

The project has been taking place in the east bound lanes between Pinal Air Park and Ruthrauff Road.

"It's an oil flush, used to condition the asphalt," said Dustin Krugel with ADOT, over the phone. "It makes the roadway stronger and prevents cracking on the roadway. Drivers should not be driving on the area we just treated.  We got reports that some drivers were unknowingly crossing cones and went into the area. We just applied this fresh oil flush."

Some drivers were upset to find their cars coated with that oil flush..

"It could potentially mean more people on site adding more cones, adding more signage," Krugel said.

ADOT officials say they take these concerns very seriously and want to hear from drivers who feel their cars were damaged during this project.

Tonight, we are hearing from some of you who have filed claims. It could be a long process, including to fill out a form they mail to you, then wait for someone to come take pictures of the damage

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
