The Arizona Department of Transportation will close a two-mile segment of State Route 260, 15 miles east of Payson, for about an hour each day beginning at 2 p.m. on Monday (July 12) and Thursday (July 15).
Eastbound traffic will stop at approximately milepost 265 and westbound traffic at milepost 267.
The roadway will be closed while workers blast and clear material to provide room to widen the highway. ADOT advises drivers to plan to drive through the work zone before 2 p.m. or after 3 p.m. to avoid delays.
Drivers should allow extra time to reach their destinations. Speed limits are reduced and a width restriction of 10 feet is in place.
