SR 87 SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS – PAYSON TO PINE

Segment 2

Paving Resumes

Crews will be closing the southbound lane in Segment 2 beginning Monday, Oct. 26 for paving operations. In addition to paving the southbound travel lane, crews will also be paving the shoulder and right turn lane as well as Bradshaw Road. Paving is scheduled through Thursday, Oct. 29.

During paving operations the roadway will be reduced to one lane with flaggers on site beginning at 6:30 a.m., Monday through Thursday. Work will be conducted behind temporary barricades to provide a safe work zone for both motorists and crew members. In addition to flaggers, temporary signage will assist in guiding traffic through the work zone. Be prepared to stop temporarily while traffic is guided through the route. Delays can be expected of up to 30 minutes during peak travel hours. Please allow additional time to reach your destination.

Temporary Striping

Crews will begin to apply temporary striping to the new roadway Thursday, Oct. 29. Temporary signage will advise motorists of paint crews. Paint crews will be highly visible. Although ADOT uses fast-drying water-based paint, driving over fresh stripes when following a striping crew removes the reflectivity of the stripe and can splatter paint onto vehicles. Please use caution when approaching paint crews.

SR 260 LITTLE GREEN VALLEY WIDENING

Construction Begins

Crews will begin construction of a project to improve SR 260 between milepost 262.9 and milepost 267.4, with 4.5 miles of divided highway from Little Green Valley to Thompson Draw. This will tie together the already completed Preacher Canyon and Kohl's Ranch sections of the highway. In addition to the divided four-lane highway, improvements to SR 260 will include: three new bridge structures, repairs to the existing bridge structure, application of rubberized asphalt, additional elk fence, new signage, striping and guardrail.

Temporary signage and message boards will identify the construction zone and will guide motorists through the route. Please be aware of trucks and heavy machinery entering the highway. Speed limits will be reduced and there is no passing in the construction zone.
