SR 83 repairs complete, restrictions lifted after Sawmill Fire

ADOT crews have repaired guardrail, replaced signs

PHOENIX – Repairs to guardrail damaged by the Sawmill Fire on State Route 83 are complete and all restrictions on the roadway between Interstate 10 and Sonoita have been lifted, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

ADOT crews repaired about two miles of guardrail and supporting posts that were damaged in the fire. Several damaged road signs also were replaced.

SR 83 was closed for three days last week because of the Sawmill Fire. Lane restrictions and reduced speed limits had been in place since Monday morning to allow crews room to make the needed repairs.
