Traffic Alerts - SR 87 Erosion Repair at Milepost 230

Northbound State Route 87 south of Payson narrowed to one lane beginning Aug. 22

Drivers should expect delays

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for the following travel restriction on State Route 87 south of Payson daily from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, beginning Monday, Aug. 22 through fall 2022:

  • Northbound SR 87 will be reduced to one lane between mileposts 229 and 230.
  • Drivers should be prepared to stop near the work zone.
  • There are no scheduled restrictions on Fridays or over the weekends.
  • The speed limit will be reduced in the work zone.

The purpose of the project is to address severe erosion encroaching on the roadway that is creating damage to the adjacent slope and drainage features. If not repaired, the erosion will eventually damage the roadway and create hazards to motorists.
