Repaving under way on State Route 87
Expect narrowed lanes and a reduced speed limit

WINSLOW, Ariz. - The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has started repaving 17 miles of State Route (SR) 87 northeast of Winslow, approximately 25 miles north of Interstate 40 on Aug. 20.

The $1.2 million project, which is scheduled for completion by the middle of September, will involve overlaying the roadway with new asphalt pavement (mileposts 368-385).

This is the second repaving project this summer on SR 87 between Winslow and Second Mesa. The first project began in June on 18 miles of SR 87 (mileposts 346-364) just north of I-40 and is scheduled for completion by the end of September.

Work hours will be from sunrise to sunset Monday through Thursday. Traffic lanes will be narrowed and the speed limit will be reduced through the work zone. Flaggers and pilot cars will be used to guide vehicles through the work zone in alternating directions and drivers should anticipate delays of up to 30 minutes.

ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the project area 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.
