ADOT begins first project to bring broadband internet to rural Arizona communities

ADOT is starting a project to bring broadband internet access to more Arizonans by laying fiber-optic conduit along a 46-mile stretch of I-17 from Flagstaff to Sedona. The project is underway as crews start laying fiber-optic conduit along southbound I-17 from milepost 340 in Flagstaff to milepost 296, just south of the junction with Highway-179. During the project, drivers can expect right-lane restrictions along southbound I-17 where crews are working. Crews plan to install the fiber-optic conduit in 3-mile stretches at a time. No restrictions will be in place on weekends and holidays. The project is anticipated to be completed by summer 2022.
