Expect lane restrictions on Highway 1-69 through this fall.

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) announced in a news release that it will begin a project this spring in Yavapai County to replace the bridge deck on Highway 169 over Interstate 17.

The $6.2 million project is scheduled to start Monday, April 24, and extend through fall 2023. The work includes replacing the Highway 169 bridge deck, which is the top surface of the structure motorists drive on. As part of the project, crews will also build a new concrete bridge deck, repair erosion at the bridge abutments and replace some sections of guardrail.

Motorists should expect Highway 169 to be reduced to one lane only for eastbound and westbound travel during construction, with a temporary traffic signal regulating traffic. To reduce delays, work crews will limit other traffic restrictions to overnight hours.

The work also requires overnight restrictions on Interstate 17 the nights of April 24 and April 25 while work crews demolish and remove the bridge deck. Southbound I-17 will be rerouted to the freeway ramps the evening of April 24. Northbound I-17 will be rerouted onto freeway ramps the evening of April 25.

For more information, please visit the project page at https://azdot.gov/projects/northwest-district-projects/sr-169-bridge-deck-replacement-i-17.​

I drove that bridge today and traffic was well controlled by the temporary traffic signals on each end of the bridge. One way traffic to be sure, but the wait going eastbound was only a few minutes during the 8 o'clock hour. No impact when southbound, as the exit ramp onto Rt 169 was clear of the construction area.

​​​​Another Lousy Ride!

ALR 108 Ride Tuesday August 29, 2023

We appear to have dodged Tropical Storm Hillary, and the remnants of Tropical Storm Harold may visit us, but we do have a chance coming up to actually go on an ALR ride !

I propose Tuesday, August 29th to visit an old standby, West Side Lilo's in Seligman for their hearty breakfast / brunch. Weather looks decent, but morning trips still look safer for avoiding rain.

We'll give a new Chino meeting location a try - that being the Shell station on Rt 89, just north of Road 2 South (diagonally across the highway from the Maverik station).  Meet at 8:30 for KSU 8:45. Distance from meeting point is about 61 miles; gas and paved parking are available near the restaurant.

​                  rider's thought for the day:      

Please respond to me a few days in advance if you're planning on going, as the restaurants would like a head count estimate.
