Chip Seal project on US 60 through the Salt River Canyon

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.
