I-40 reduced to one lane near Williams and Flagstaff
Drivers heading eastbound on I-40 towards Williams and Flagstaff are using one of the westbound lanes for 5-miles. ADOT has begun to repair the damaged roadway. The project, will rebuild the roadway from the ground up, including laying a new foundation. The work will be a long-term fix for the winter-weather damage this stretch has seen through the years. Last week, crews built a temporary road across the median at each end of the project for eastbound drivers, which will create one lane in each direction on the westbound side of I-40. The traffic switch will remain in place through the fall. Work on the other side of the Interstate will occur next year, after winter.
