TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Department of Transportation is letting drivers use the new Ajo Way bridge over Interstate 19, but that means there will be some travel restrictions.

I-19 is reduced to one lane in both directions, one mile north and south of Ajo Way through 5 a.m. Saturday, July 15.

Both the southbound on-ramp and the northbound off-ramp at Ajo Way are scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Friday, July 14. In addition, the traffic signals at Ajo Way will be turned off at these times. 

Law enforcement will direct traffic while the signals are off.

"Crews are replacing the current bridge with a wider bridge that will include a single-point urban interchange, which uses a single set of traffic signals to control traffic entering and exiting I-19," ADOT said in a news release. "The project, which is expected to continue through summer 2018 also includes new ramps and walls to reduce noise to adjacent neighborhoods and commercial areas."

The southbound off-ramp and the northbound on-ramp are scheduled to remain closed until late August.

During those ramp closures, drivers are encouraged to use the ramps at 29th Street or Irvington Road.

    Under the program, the city will choose several large intersections to become protected left. That means left turns would be made only on a green arrow.
