Delays Scheduled On Sr 260 The Week Of Aug. 23

Traffic to be shifted to detour on Monday


The Arizona Department of Transportation will reduce State Route 260 to one lane, 15 miles east of Payson, from 6 a.m. to noon on Monday, Aug. 23.

Crews will shift concrete barriers to align with a newly paved detour and then switch traffic onto the detour.

The detour will provide a safe work zone as construction continues to transform a two-lane segment of State Route 260 to a four-lane divided highway. The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2011.

Drivers should be prepared to stop and wait for up to 20 minutes until a pilot car guides them through the work zone. Speed limits are reduced and a width restriction of 10 feet is in place.

Information regarding the project is available on the toll-free project hotline at (877) 521-1118.
