Update: Roadway improvement project on US 60 between Globe and Show Low temporarily delayed
Plan for 30-minute delays once work gets started
The Arizona Department of Transportation has temporarily delayed the start of a chip-seal project on US 60 between Globe and Show Low due to weather conditions. The $1.4 million, three-month project aims to improve and protect the roadway surface. Work scheduled to begin on July 19 will start at a later date. ADOT will announce a new start date when it is confirmed.
Once work begins, ADOT advises motorists to plan for the following restrictions and expect delays of up to 30 minutes:
- US 60 will be narrowed to one lane only in two-to-seven-mile increments between milepost 286 and milepost 302 in the Salt River Canyon.
- A pilot car and flaggers will guide alternating traffic through the work zone.
- Closures are scheduled to be in place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays-Fridays.
Work consists of applying a protective chip seal coat on the travel lanes, shoulders and turn lanes. Drivers should be prepared to slow down and use caution around construction personnel and equipment.
Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.
