ADOT continues highway improvement project on US 70
Drivers should plan for lane restrictions in Bylas

The Arizona Department of Transportation is continuing a project to improve 4 miles of US 70 in Bylas. Drivers should plan for lane restrictions through fall 2018.

The project is located within the boundaries of the San Carlos Apache Reservation, beginning at Calva Road at milepost 293, and continuing east to milepost 297.

Key improvements include:

  • New pavement
  • Lighting
  • Raise medians
  • Drainage improvements
  • Pedestrian walkways
  • A Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon

The Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) assists pedestrians cross a highway at a marked but unsignalized crosswalk by warning and controlling vehicular traffic. Learn more about how to use the PHB.
