TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Today is a major milestone for ADOT, as crews continue to advance on the two-year Interstate 10/Ina Road traffic interchange project. According to ADOT spokesperson Tom Herrmann, the project is moving on schedule toward the halfway point.
Crews will be pouring concrete for the bridge decks that will carry Ina Road over Interstate 10 and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.
Supports for the bridges have been put in place over the past few months. The deck pour is scheduled to begin about 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Crews will pour the deck only for the western half of the bridge that will cross above the new eastbound lanes of I-10. Herrmann says that will avoid requiring any restrictions on I-10 traffic during the construction.
Eastbound traffic will move to the new pavement in mid-December, with westbound traffic moving to the new pavement about a month later.
Three lanes will be maintained in each direction until the project is complete in early 2019.
When the work is finished, I-10 will include four lanes in each direction, an addition of one lane each way.
The Ina Road project is designed to improve traffic flow ain Marana and the surrounding areas .
