State Route 287 between Coolidge and Florence Pavement Life Extension Project


The Arizona Department of Transportation is completing a pavement life extension project on State Route 287 between Coolidge and Florence starting in spring 2022.

The project will extend from the intersection of SR 87 and SR 287 in Coolidge to just west of the intersection of SR 287 and SR 79B in Florence.

Key elements of the project include removing and replacing the riding surface on the travel lanes.
