Bridgework Resumes on SR 260 East of Payson
Westbound traffic will be shifted to eastbound lanes.
After upgrading five eastbound bridge approaches on State Route 260 last fall, the Arizona Department of Transportation returned in March to replace and repave the approaches to three westbound bridges between mileposts 272 and 277, approximately 20 miles east of Payson.
Motorists traveling along SR 260 should allow extra travel time and be aware that westbound traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes, which will become a two-way roadway through the five-mile work zone, through the end of July.
A 12-foot width restriction will be in place throughout construction, and drivers should be aware of heavy traffic during peak travel times.
The $2.9 million improvement project, which is expected to be completed in August, includes removing the existing bridge approaches and departure slabs, repaving the roadway at the bridge approaches, reconstructing guardrail and replacing existing pavement markings.
