Updated schedule to complete US 60 widening project in Show Low

Drivers can expect restrictions, delays this week and next week

PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation will be conducting final paving on a newly widened stretch of US 60 between State Route 77 and 40th Street in Show Low beginning Thursday, June 21.

On Thursday and Friday, June 22, travel on US 60 east of SR 77 from Adams Road to 40th Street will be restricted to one lane in each direction while crews pave. This same restriction will be in place Wednesday, June 27 through Friday, June 29.

On Monday, June 25, beginning at 8 p.m., the intersection of US 60 and SR 77, locally known as Penrod Road, will be closed overnight for final paving until 4 a.m. Tuesday, June 26.

Drivers should plan extra travel time and seek alternate routes to avoid heavy traffic delays.

This $7 million project widened US 60, locally known as Deuce of Clubs, between SR 77 and 40th Street to alleviate traffic in the area. The project also included upgraded signals and lighting as well as dual left-turn lanes at the US 60/SR 77 intersection.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
