Intersection improvements on State Route 69 as part of the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe connector road widening project are nearing completion. Activation of the new signals on the roadway will be activated overnight next week between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. beginning Sunday, Feb. 3 through Friday, Feb. 8, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
As night work is performed, crews will restrict lanes in both directions during work hours and drivers are encouraged to allow extra travel time through the project work area as crews restripe the roadway and activate new signals.
Daytime left-turn restrictions are also anticipated between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. and will be clearly marked with temporary barricades and signage.
The tribal connector road, which will connect state routes 69 and 89, will open when the new traffic signal on SR 89 is activated, which is expected within the next two to three weeks.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
