ADOT activating new traffic signal at SR 69 and Spring Lane this week

Project improves safety in community of Spring Valley

SR 69 Spring Lane mapPRESCOTT – A new traffic signal along State Route 69 near Cordes Junction will be activated this week after the Arizona Department of Transportation finishes up a project to improve safety at the intersection with Spring Lane.

Those finishing touches require lane restrictions on SR 69 between mileposts 264 and 265 Tuesday, Aug. 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Drivers should expect delays of up to 30 minutes.

The new traffic signal is set to be activated by the morning of Friday, Aug. 20.

In addition to a new signal, the $560,000 project consisted of an additional left-turn lane from Spring Lane, an advanced radar detection system and intersection lighting. A median ditch was also installed to eliminate left turns into nearby Mayer High School from SR 69 and Wildcat Way. 

The project began in November 2020, but was temporarily put on hold due to a delay in shipping manufacturer parts.
