ADOT repaving SR 87 north of Winslow
Drivers should expect narrowed lanes and a reduced speed limit during project

HOLBROOK, Ariz. - The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has begun a project to repave 18 miles of State Route 87 (mileposts 346 to 364). The project is located northeast of Winslow and starts just north of the Interstate 40 interchange, which leads to Second Mesa.

The $5.5 million project, which is scheduled for completion by the end of September, will include -

• Removing old pavement and replacing it with new.

• Replacing guardrail.

• Building up the road shoulders.

• Applying new pavement markings.

Work hours will be from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. 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.
