SR 87 Safety Improvements Payson to Pine

Project Description

The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin a project to improve State Route 87 between Payson and Pine. Crews will be working on safety improvements and resurfacing the roadway with rubberized asphalt. Roadway safety enhancements will include upgraded guardrails, widened shoulders, widened roadway for turn lanes, extended box culverts for improved drainage and improved signage. Work will began on June 22 with timber removal and is expected to be complete by early 2010.

Independence Day Weekend

Crews will not be working on Friday, July 3 in observance of the 4th of July holiday. Though work will be halted for the day, please be aware that all posted and reduced speed limits apply and will be strictly enforced throughout the holiday weekend.

Removal of Timber

Crews will continue logging and timber removal to accommodate the improvements. Although no lane closures or restrictions are anticipated at this time, drivers are asked to use extra caution and anticipate brief delays through the work zone.

Stay Informed

ADOT strives to keep the public informed about construction projects, lanes restrictions, and closures. This eUpdate is distributed periodically to help keep the Payson, Pine and Strawberry communities up to date and alert them of any expected construction activities that may affect traffic. Stay in touch with the project team by calling the project hotline at 1.877.521.1118 or emailing PrescottDistrictUpdates@azdot.gov. We thank all of you who have contacted us with your interest in this project.

Please note: Changes to construction plans can happen frequently due to weather, equipment availability and personnel issues. We try to anticipate construction activities a week in advance but changes may occur. Intermittent lane closures, with short delays, may not always be known in advance.
