PHOENIX — Cleanup efforts are continuing on State Route 72 following a breach in a Central Arizona Project (CAP) canal near Bouse (milepost 30) early Sunday morning, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. While the highway remains open, minor intermittent traffic restrictions may cause slight delays as maintenance crews continue to sweep dirt and rocks off the roadway.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
