TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Department of Transportation will pave an eight-mile stretch of State Route 86 (West Ajo Way) west of Three Points through next week.

The work, which started Wednesday, will take place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, about six miles west of Junction 386, which leads to Kitt Peak. It will affect the eastbound lanes heading into Tucson from Ajo or Sells.

A pilot car will direct all traffic through the area, but ADOT officials said to plan for 15-minute delays.

This work is part of a $17 million project to build new eight-foot shoulders along the highway, according to ADOT. The department will also add two wildlife crossings underneath the road.

Officials want to remind all drivers to slow down and be cautious in all construction areas.
