Roadway widening project starting on SR 264 at Keams Canyon

KEAMS CANYON, Ariz. - The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is widening State Route 264 from milepost 402 to 403 in Navajo County in front of the Keams Canyon Trading Post as part of a highway improvement project starting April 6.

The project includes widening a section of highway in front of the Keams Canyon Trading Post, extending culvert pipes, relocating a waterline, installing new guardrail and overlaying the roadway with new asphalt.

Work hours will be 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. ADOT anticipates completing the project by mid-July. Two-way traffic will be maintained for most of the project, but there may be times when a pilot car will be needed while sections of the highway are closed for culvert pipe installation.

The speed limit will be reduced through the construction zone and there will be width restrictions. Drivers are asked to use caution and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

Business and school bus access to the Keams Canyon Trading Post area will be maintained at all times.
