ADOT seeks input for potential improvements along SR 87 south of Payson

Public encouraged to take online survey

PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation wants your input on potential projects to improve safety and mobility on State Route 87 between Fountain Hills and Payson, a popular route for those traveling to the high country.

ADOT is conducting a Corridor Development Study along the 59-mile stretch of SR 87 to improve safety, mobility and the needs of commercial vehicles. Several potential roadway improvements have been identified to improve corridor mobility and safety, including climbing and passing lanes, shoulder improvements, rock fall mitigation and traveler information systems.

Area residents and those who travel the SR 87 corridor frequently are encouraged to provide their input by completing an online survey at

The survey can be completed through Sept. 30.

No funding has been identified to implement any of the potential improvements. The Corridor Development Study helps ADOT to identify and prioritize needs so that funding can be considered and prioritized against needs statewide.
