Use Kachina Boulevard exit as alternative to JW Powell Boulevard
From now through Thursday, the southbound exit for JW Powell Boulevard along Interstate 17 near Flagstaff will be closed for repaving, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Drivers looking to access the Flagstaff Pulliam Airport and State Route 89A can use the exit for Kachina Boulevard and then follow the detour signs to SR 89A and the airport. Drivers heading south along I-17 will also need to merge left approaching the JW Powell exit as the right lane is restricted at the exit.
Work will occur today through Thursday between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Crews will be milling down the old pavement on the ramp and replacing it with new pavement.
