Blasting Set For Highway 260 East Of Payson


The Arizona Department of Transportation will close a two-mile segment of Highway 260, 12 miles east of Star Valley at 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, Wednesday, June 1, and Thursday, June 2. The roadway will be closed for 45 minutes to provide a safe work zone for crews as they conduct blasting operations on the project.

Eastbound traffic will be stopped at approximately milepost 269 and westbound traffic will be stopped at approximately milepost 271.

Blasting on the project uses controlled explosives to excavate and remove rock as crews continue to clear the path for the new roadway.

Drivers can expect delays of up to 45 minutes.
