The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will begin construction of a water line along State Route 260 between Preacher Canyon and Kohl's Ranch on Aug. 28. The water will be used during the project to widen the highway between Little Green Valley and Kohl's Ranch.
The construction activity will impact motorists traveling on State Route 260 between Payson and Heber. At times the roadway will be reduced to one lane. Flaggers and pilot vehicles will help motorists through the affected areas and drivers should expect delays of up to 30 minutes. Construction may continue into October, but the traffic delays should end by Sept. 19.
Motorists are advised to watch for construction personnel and public safety officers and to obey all posted speed limit signs and detour routes while traveling through the construction area.
