Work on temporary traffic control modifications will begin Monday, Jan. 10.
All traffic will be shifted around the Kolb Road and Territory Drive intersection onto the detour lanes. North and southbound turn movements will not be affected.
SR 77/Oracle Road: Through late 2022
The Arizona Department of Transportation is paving four miles of State Route 77/Oracle Road with plans to finish by late 2021.
The work will take place on the southern end of the project, with paving operations on Miracle Mile between Interstate 10 and Oracle Road and on Oracle Road from Miracle Mile to River Road.
Most of the work will occur between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays.
During work hours, drivers can expect large vehicles and equipment on the roadway, uneven pavement and reduced speed limits through December. One lane of travel will remain open during pavement operations.
The new pavement is one of many improvements planned as part of a two-year, $34 million project to improve the highway between Interstate 10 and Oracle Road, as well as on Oracle Road from Miracle Mile to Calle Concordia.
Additional pavement work will resume in 2022.
Drivers should expect some daytime lane restrictions and delays throughout the project. ADOT will maintain access to the roughly 1,100 businesses in the corridor.

Old Nogales Interceptor Sewer Improvement Project
Crews will install a 36-inch sewer pipe across Valencia Road at Nogales Highway through mid-March.
There will be lane restrictions for northbound Nogales Highway at and near the Valencia Road intersection, and traffic control will change as work progresses.
Traffic control will be in place 24-hours per day. Northbound Nogales Highway will be reduced to one through-travel lane at the intersection of Valencia Road during January.
The Old Nogales Interceptor Sewer Improvement Project is designed to increase capacity of the existing Old Nogales Interceptor and the Park Avenue Sewer in addition to installing sewer infrastructure to manage the future anticipated flows along the new Aerospace Corridor and Aerospace Parkway. The total length of the project is nearly 14 miles and extends west along Old Vail Connection Road from the Wilmot State Prison to Nogales Highway and north along the east side of Nogales Highway, where it discharges into the Southeast Interceptor at 36th Street and Euclid Avenue.
