Look for lane closures on I-10 east of Tucson

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Drivers traveling east of Tucson this week should encounter some delays as crews install "rumble strips" on the side of the road.

One lane of traffic will close in each direction of I-10 between The Marsh Station Road Interchange and Cienega Creek on Monday and Tuesday.

Work hours for this construction are 4:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Speeds will also be reduced to 45 miles per hour while roadwork takes place.

"Rumble Strips" are the grooves in interstate shoulders that help alert drivers when they move out of their travel lanes. The strips vibrate and make a rumbling sound when you drive over them.

Arizona Department of Transportation officials want you to drive slowly and be alert in all construction zones. Watch for people and equipment in the area.
