I-10 construction work nearing completion

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Construction continues on I-10 between Ruthrauff and Miracle Mile today. 

Generally work would mean an overnight closure, but in a twist, the left lane heading west toward Phoenix is closed until 4 p.m. Monday afternoon. 

This is a reminder for drivers to be sure to slow down to 45 miles per hour and consider adding a little extra time to get where they are going.

During May crews have been working on finalizing construction on I-10 from Miracle Mile to Ruthrauff Road, as the Arizona Department of Transportation works to finish the Prince Road widening project.  This project has been ongoing for more than two years. Workers finally finished constructing the bridge several weeks ago and are right now working to pave and stripe the road. 

Until paving and striping work is complete there will only be three lanes in each direction, but once the paving is done, according to ADOT each side of the interstate, both east and westbound will be expanded to four lanes.
