STATE ROUTE 87 AIRPORT ROAD ROUNDABOUT

Installation of Signage

Crews will be installing new signage at the intersections of SR 87 and Airport Road as well as Tyler Parkway the week of November 15. The new signage will be covered during construction and will be implemented upon the completion of the project. Until that time, motorists will be guided through the project work zone by temporary signage and barricades

Tyler Parkway - Installation of Sidewalk Ramps

Crews will begin installation of a new sidewalk ramps on the northwest corner of SR 87 and Tyler Parkway on Monday, November 15 and Tuesday, November 16. Southbound traffic will remain one lane approaching the roundabout, and lane width will be reduced to 12 feet during sidewalk ramp installation. Message boards, temporary barricades, and signage will safely guide motorists through the construction route.

Seeding of the Project

ADOT crews are scheduled to seed the project boundaries on Friday, November 19. Seeding is used to establish vegetation in disturbed areas and is a key tool in reducing soil erosion and containing sedimentation.

No Left Turns Permitted

While SR 87 is restricted to one lane at the roundabout, there will be no left turns allowed in either the north or southbound lanes of the project work zone. Once final paving of the roundabout is complete, the restriction will be removed and left turns will be allowed within the new roundabout formation.

The speed limit is reduced to 25 miles per hour and will be strictly enforced.

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 Rim Country communities up to date and alert citizens 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.

As always, drivers are reminded to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel. ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center at www.az511.gov or call 5-1-1.
