Work underway to improve SR 89 and Road 1 North in Chino Valley

Project will improve traffic flow, make turns easier

SR 89 Road 1 North project mapCHINO VALLEY, AZ – The Arizona Department of Transportation has started a project to improve traffic flow at the intersection of SR 89 and Road 1 North in Chino Valley.

The project will add a right-turn lane on northbound SR 89 to eastbound Road 1 North, add left turn lanes on Road 1 North, and install a new traffic signal and detection sensors.

Two lanes of traffic will be maintained on SR 89 during daytime hours. Drivers should 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 plan for round-the-clock phased closures of east- and westbound access to Road 1 North during the project and use signed detour routes for Road 1 North access.

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