As the four lanes are being added to Highway 260, it is becoming a main route for traversing central Arizona. Evident by the many large vehicle and semi-trucks are using it more and more.
It would behoove the state highway department to put a bypass route around Payson and Star Valley for those commercial and other vehicles that do not need or want to stop or go through the traffic of those towns.
It’s time to do it now, while the traffic is not as heavy and unsafe as it’s going to be once the four lanes are all completed.
Let’s act now and put highway safety, first!
