ADOT road construction projects

Road maintenance scheduled for State Route 89A through June

Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) maintenance crews will continue to work for the next couple of weeks on State Route 89A from the top of the switch backs (mile post 390) to the Flagstaff city limits (mile post 398). Crews will be improving shoulders and fixing drainage issues on both sides of the roadway. Work started June 2 with an anticipated finish date the end of June. Crews will be working 10-hour shifts from Monday through Thursday with no work being done on Fridays or the weekends.

One lane of the roadway at the work areas may need to be closed at different times to accommodate workers and equipment. Flaggers will be utilized in those areas and delays will be kept to a minimum. ADOT appreciates the patience of the public as crews continue to improve the safety for motorists on this scenic highway.

Two repaving projects to continue in Flagstaff area through July

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) began two repaving projects in the Flagstaff area Memorial Day weekend.

The first project is the southbound lanes of Interstate 17 from the Airport Interchange (mile post 337) to the Willard Springs Interchange (mile post 325). The work will consist of removing the top layer of asphalt and replacing it with new pavement. Sections of the roadbed will need to be repaired prior to the new pavement being installed. Some guardrail work will also be done. Work hours will be between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The project is scheduled for completion in late July.

The second project will be on Business Route 40 in Flagstaff from Switzer Canyon Drive, through downtown Flagstaff, to Pine Springs (Woody Mountain Road area on Route 66). The project will consist of removing the top layer of asphalt and replacing it with new pavement.

The project will also add a right turn lane at the junction of Woodlands Village Road and Route 66. Minor work on curb, gutter and culvert replacement will also be done. Impacts to traffic will be minimized by performing a majority of the work between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday night. However, some minor delays should be expected. ADOT will keep members of the traveling public, local businesses, and residents informed of traffic impacts. Business access will be maintained throughout the project. The project is scheduled for completion in October.
