US 60 and State Route 260 Pavement Preservation Projects in Show Low

The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin pavement preservation projects on US 60 and State Route 260 in the Show Low area beginning June 2021. These roadways serve as major corridors in Show Low and are some of the most-traveled corridors in the White Mountains region.

Overview of Projects

The two projects will include removing the existing pavement and replacing it with new pavement. Other work includes installing new guardrail, curb and gutter and sidewalks. The projects are scheduled to be under construction at the same time.

What to expect during construction

Lane restrictions will not be in place during daytime hours or weekends, and business access will be maintained at all times during construction.

ADOT reminds drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment while the following overnight restrictions are in place:

  • US 60 (mileposts 336 to 342): Intermittent east- and westbound lane closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Sunday evenings and continuing through Friday mornings. 
  • SR 260 (mileposts 342 to 347): Intermittent east- and westbound lane closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Sunday evenings and continuing through Friday mornings.
  • One travel lane will remain open in each direction while the overnight work  is taking place.
  • Motorists should be prepared for delays of up to 20 minutes during overnight work.
  • The speed limit will be reduced in the work zones.

Project Schedule

Construction began in summer 2021. Work will start on the east side of US 60 and will proceed westward to SR 260 as the project progresses.

The project will be constructed over two years and continue through to fall 2021. Construction will shut down for the winter, as pavement work cannot be performed during the winter months in the White Mountains due to low temperatures and wet weather conditions. Work will resume in the spring and is expected to be completed in fall 2022.

Schedule subject to change based on weather or other unforeseen factors.
