US 60 east of Show Low narrowed to one lane only near the SR 61 split beginning July 11

Drivers should expect delays

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for the following travel restriction east of Show Low near the US 60/SR 61 split (known locally as the “Y”) from July 11, through spring 2023.

  • US 60 will be reduced to one lane only of alternating east- and westbound travel between County Road 3174 and the US 60/SR 61 split (mileposts 352 - 353) from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.The SR 61 merge ramp will be closed intermittently. Drivers will use the intersection of SR 61 and US 60 in lieu of the mergeramp.
  • Flaggers will direct traffic through the work zone.
  • The speed limit will be reduced in the work zone.

The mile-long project includes the widening of westbound US 60 and SR 61 from MP 352 to 353 to allow for the SR 61 merge lane realignment and extension. In addition, crews will widen US 60 to allow for  westbound and eastbound turn lanes at North Fork Road.
