SR 264 MP 465 to New Mexico State Line


This project is complete


Project Cost: $7.2 million

The Arizona Department of Transportation has completed a pavement preservation project on State Route 264 in far northeastern Arizona starting at milepost 465 to the New Mexico state line (milepost 476). This roadway is the main thoroughfare connecting east-west traffic to the capital of the Navajo Nation in Window Rock.

The project began in spring 2022.


Project Elements

The purpose of the project is to extend the life of the pavement. The work will include:

  • Removing the existing surface pavement and replacing it with new asphalt.
  • Spot pavement repairs.
  • Restriping the roadway.

Pavement project begins on SR 264 near Window Rock

Drivers should expect delays

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for the following travel restrictions along State Route 264 near Window Rock, from Monday, July 25, to Friday, August 19.

  • East- and westbound SR 264 will have lane restrictions along the divided four-lane sections of roadway between mileposts 465 - 476.
  • Flaggers will direct traffic through the work zone in the two-lane sections of the roadway, which will be reduced to one lane of alternating east- and westbound travel.
  • The speed limit will be reduced in the work zone.
  • Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, be prepared to stop and watch for construction personnel and equipment. 
  • Drivers should plan for delays while traffic traverses the work zone safely.

The restrictions are needed so crews can safely conduct pavement surface repairs and other related work. The construction project is expected to be completed by the fall 2022.
