COTTONWOOD – A highway improvement project on State Route 89A in Cottonwood is set to start on Monday, July 31, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Restrictions are anticipated through early 2024. Drivers should plan for delays at times and allow extra time while the following weekday restrictions are in place from approximately 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.:

  • SR 89A in Cottonwood will be narrowed to one lane at times in either direction between Cottonwood Street and the Verde River bridge (mileposts 353 - 356).
  • A 12-foot width restriction will be in place.
  • No weekend work is currently planned as part of the project.

Drivers should obey a reduced speed limit and use caution when approaching and driving through the work zone. Access to area businesses will be maintained with some necessary restrictions.

Crews will be doing pavement resurfacing work while also making sidewalk and gutter improvements and other repairs along this stretch of SR 89A.
