Work continues on US 160, State Route 264
TUBA CITY - As part of on ongoing roadway improvement project, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has begun working on State Route 264 (SR 264), near the community of Moenkopi, south of Tuba City. Crews are preparing the roadway for paving, which has been reduced to one lane. As part of the same project, ADOT also has begun paving work on US 160, just west of Tuba City, which is expected to be complete by late April. Paving will begin on SR 264 after paving is complete on US 160.
Drivers can continue to expect lane closures, one-way traffic, reduced speeds and brief delays on US 160 and SR 264 for the project's duration. Normal hours of construction are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday. ADOT plans to complete the project by the fall.
The $9.6-million project includes widening US 160 from milepost (MP) 319 to MP 322 to create a multi-lane undivided highway and the removal of the pedestrian bridge over US 160 in Tuba City. On SR 264, ADOT will resurface the existing two-lane roadway, starting at the intersection of US 160 and SR 264, from MP 322 to MP 324. The project includes replacing cattle guards, pipe culverts and catch basins, as well as striping and signing, guardrail installation, seeding and other related work on both roadways.
Motorists must obey all posted restrictions throughout the project area. Message boards and other traffic signs will provide additional construction details. During lane closures, flagmen and law enforcement officers will assist with traffic movement and compliance with posted restrictions.
ADOT and the contractor appreciate the public's patience during construction. For more information, call the project's toll-free hotline at 1-866-659-0657.
