State Route 287/79B Roundabout in Florence

State Route 287/79B Roundabout in Florence



The Arizona Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the town of Florence and Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), is working on a project to reconstruct the intersection of State Route 287 and SR 79B with dual roundabouts.

Key elements of the project include:

  • Constructing a multiple-lane roundabout at SR 287/SR 79B
  • Constructing a single-lane roundabout at SR 79B/Florence Heights Drive
  • Realigning the west end of Florence Heights Drive
  • Reconstructing local streets and driveways within the project limits
  • Constructing new sidewalks and multi-use pathways to improve accessibility 
  • Installing new curb and gutter and storm water systems including retention basins within the project limits
  • Replacing and improving roadway lighting
  • Adding aesthetics include decomposed granite, decorative median paving and town entry monument

Work began January 2024 and is expected to be completed by late summer 2024.

Traffic Restrictions

SR 287 and SR 79B are open and drivers will be able to access businesses in the area. One lane on the dual roundabout is still closed as crews continue to work in the area.  

Drivers are advised to plan for the following traffic changes: 

  • Burger King access will be available at the northwest entrance across from Campbell Avenue and Sunrise Plaza Drive. 
  • The primary/main entrance for Burger King closest to Main Street/SR 79B will be closed.
  • Traffic flow will be allowed on the roundabout, however only one lane will be open while crews continue working in the area. 

The speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph and a vehicle width restriction of 12-feet will be in place.
