Improvement project at SR 89 and Road 1 North progresses with traffic shift

All traffic shifted to east side of intersection through early October

SR 89 Road 1 NorthCHINO VALLEY – Traffic along SR 89 in Chino Valley has been shifted at the intersection with Road 1 North as the Arizona Department of Transportation makes progress to improve traffic flow.

Since early July, crews have been working installing a new right turn lane on northbound SR 89 to eastbound Road 1 North, laying detection sensors for a new traffic signal, and adding left turn lanes in each direction on Road 1 North. 

Now, traffic has been shifted to the east side of the intersection while crews continue to make improvements. The new traffic pattern should be in place until early October. Two lanes in each direction are being maintained while work is occurring.

Drivers should continue to plan for short-term lane closures for signal installation, roadway paving and striping during nighttime operations of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sundays through Fridays. No weekend or holiday work is planned.

Drivers should also continue to use signed detour routes for Road 1 North access.

The $850,317 project is expected to wrap up by the end of the year.
