Traffic backup that is occurring on and around the overpass in midtown Maricopa will continue longer than expected.

Drivers who use State Route 347 and nearby roads should plan for slow travel and delays through the rest of this week. The Arizona Department of Transportation has extended its final paving operations through Friday.

Following is the updated road restriction schedule:

Wednesday
• Paving will begin at 8 a.m. and continue to 6 p.m.
• SR 347 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction between Hathaway Avenue and Alterra Parkway/Desert Cedars Drive.
• In addition, there will be left-turn restrictions between SR 347, Honeycutt Road and Honeycutt Avenue.

Thursday and Friday
• Paving will begin at 8 a.m. and continue to 6 p.m.
• SR 347 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction between Hathaway Avenue and Alterra Parkway/Desert Cedars Drive.
• There will be right- and left-turn restrictions at each intersection throughout project area.

Crews will re-open segments of the roadway when the freshly paved roads are dry. ADOT recommends drivers allow extra travel time and avoid using the impacted roads, if possible, by taking alternate routes. The road restriction schedule is subject to change.
