Pine Creek Canyon Road work going smoothly

Roadwork on the Pine Creek Canyon Road in Pine is going just about as smoothly as, well, roadwork can go, officials say. Although the project hit a few speed bumps after work started May 1 — mostly with utilities — residents and motorists have been cooperative and patient, said Steve Stratton, Gila County public works director. Work includes widening and paving roughly 5,000 feet of Pine Creek Canyon Road starting from the intersection with Highway 87. Work is expected to wrap up in late October.
