PHOENIX — A repaving project on U.S. 70 between Globe and Safford will cause delays for drivers over the next few months.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says work will start weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. about 45 miles west of Globe and about 35 miles east of Safford. The work is expected to continue through next Spring.

The repaving means the speed limit will be down to 35 mph and the road reduced to one lane.
