The closures are needed so crews can work on repairing and preserving the pavement along SR 89 from Pittsburgh Road, north of Paulden, to Hell Canyon Bridge.  The work consists of apply a micro-seal surface and rut-filling treatments to the roadway, which protects and extends the life of the pavement.

ADOT advises drivers to slow down and use caution around personnel and equipment while pavement repairs are underway.
