The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration are conducting engineering and environmental studies to develop a long-range plan for improvements to SR 77 between Show Low and Taylor. The study area is on SR 77 from the junction of U.S. Route 60 (MP 342.2) in Show Low to Pinedale Road (MP 357.4), just south of Taylor. The study will evaluate multiple widening alternatives using the current road alignment, select a preferred alternative for improvements that will increase the safety and capacity of this segment of SR 77, and prepare probable cost estimates for the preferred alternative to be considered for programming. Environmental issues will also be assessed. Potential projects will be identified and priorities will be established for future inclusion in ADOT's construction program when funding is available.
