A stretch of State Route 347 south of Casa Blanca Road will be restricted on Saturday and Sunday for work to apply an asphalt sealant to the pavement.

The Arizona Department of Transportation’s fog sealing project will narrow SR 347 to one lane in each direction between Casa Blanca Road and Sudagi Way, south of Farrell Road from 4 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Tanker trucks will be used to spray a liquid asphalt emulsion to help extend the life of the pavement along SR 347. Fog sealing has been done along sections of several Phoenix-area freeways in recent years to refresh the asphalt pavement.

Drivers should allow extra travel time and plan for restrictions on turning movements while the fog sealing is taking place.
