The project involves rock excavation and rock scaling to extend the width of the clear zone on both sides of the highway near Pintek Ranch Road (Milepost 334) to decrease the risk of debris landing in the roadway. Work began in Aug. 2021 and is expected to extend into the summer of 2022.

ADOT says delays can be up to 15 minutes or longer during the project.
