PHOENIX — The Arizona Department of Transportation announced Monday it is reallocating $50.5 million to replace deteriorating pavement on several highways in the state.

Six highways, including Interstate 10, Interstate 17 and U.S. 60, in 23 locations will benefit from the repair work, according to ADOT.

Most of the improvements will happen in northern Arizona, where snow and rain from winter storms created good conditions for potholes and other road surface damage.

“ADOT’s goal is to deliver the safest and most reliable highway system possible with the funding we have to make improvements around the state,” ADOT State Engineer Greg Byres said in a press release.

“We know these projects to improve pavement conditions are much-needed and we will move forward as quickly as possible.”

Funding for the projects will come from savings on other ADOT ventures.

Work is expected to begin in mid-May and continue through June.

Here’s the full list of areas that will be closed for repairs:


• Both directions between Needle Mountain Road and SR 95 (MP 2-9)
