PHOENIX – Pavement improvement work will require lane restrictions along State Route 87 south of Sunflower starting Monday, August 4, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Drivers with plans to use SR 87 between the Phoenix area and Payson are urged to allow extra travel time and to be prepared for slow traffic at times.

Northbound SR 87 will be narrowed to one lane in areas between the Four Peaks Turnoff and Sunflower from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, August 4-7, to allow crews to resurface sections of old pavement between mileposts 206-218.

Southbound restrictions south of Sunflower are scheduled to be in place from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, August 6-7, and continue on Monday and Tuesday, August 11-12.

No work or restrictions will be scheduled in the area on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, August 8-10.

The pavement improvement project's schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather.
