ADOT to resume work on northern Arizona projects

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — State transportation officials are reviving construction projects across northern Arizona this summer.

The Arizona Department of Transportation announced Tuesday crews will continue work on several interstate projects that were forced to shut down due to cold temperatures.

ADOT expects new and continuing projects in counties including Coconino, Yavapai, Apache and Navajo to total nearly $250 million.

Officials say construction in Arizona’s high country typically occurs mid-April through September because of cooler weather, high elevations and rougher terrain.

They say motorists should remember to follow speed limits and be cautious when driving in a construction zone.
