US 60: 40th Street - State Route 61 Pavement Rehabilitation project

Overview

US 60 Show Low Project Map

The Arizona Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration are starting a new pavement preservation project on the US 60 that is located in the city of Show Low and Navajo and Apache counties.

ADOT crews will remove the existing pavement and replace it with new pavement along 9 miles of US 60 between 40th Street and State Route 61 (between mileposts 344 and 353). Work on the $4.6 million project is scheduled to begin in late April and continue for approximately six months.

Other elements of the project include:

  • Applying a chip-seal coating on top of the newly paved section of roadway
  • Performing rehabilitation work on a bridge within the project area
  • Installing new guard rail and pavement markings

The pavement preservation project, which will generate construction-related noise, is being done to protect the condition of the highway and extend the life of the roadway.

Traffic Impacts

Drivers should expect lane restrictions or closures and plan for possible delays while work is underway.

  • Lane closures and restrictions will begin in late April 2020 and continue, as needed, through fall 2020.
  • US 60 will be narrowed at times to one lane of alternating east- and westbound travel where the road work is occurring.
  • Night-time work will occur in June for paving operations.
  • Traffic-control personnel will be on-site to stop traffic and direct motorists through the work zone.
  • The speed limit in the work zone will be reduced to 25 mph and law enforcement will be present.
  • ADOT reminds drivers to slow down and use caution around construction personnel and equipment.
