    "Especially when it comes to seat belts. You just know what to look for after a while," he said, explaining driver habits and behavior. "I've seen it from where they're with their hands on the wheel, looking forward, and no eye contact, to waving or making too much contact. That draws my attention."

COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona Department of Transportation is starting construction work on I-10 near Willcox this week, as part of a $7.6 million dollar repaving project.

The street face lift will involve about 14 miles of I-10 between US 191 South and Old Stewart Road. 

The road development will begin Wednesday with the westbound exit ramp at Old Stewart Road. Crews will close the roadway to all traffic from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Drivers in the area can head past the exit and use the westbound exit at Rex Allen Drive, then head east on I-10 to get back onto Old Stewart Road.

On Tuesday, May 27, workers will begin laying new asphalt on westbound I-10 between Old Stewart Road and Taylor Road.

Roadwork on eastbound I-10 headed towards New Mexico should also start between the US 191/I-10 Junction and Old Stewart Road. 

This should all take place between 4 a.m. and 7 p.m. 

As this pavement happens, all entrance and exit ramps will shut down at US 191 South, Taylor Road, Rex Allen Drive, Fort Grant Road and Old Stewart Road for several days.  

Once crews finish the right hand lanes, construction will shift to the left.

Watch for lane closures and slower speeds in this area through August, when the work is scheduled to wind down.
