Pavement improvement project on US 89 near Flagstaff begins next week
Improvements scheduled for completion by the end of July
On Tuesday, May 29, the Arizona Department of Transportation will begin a pavement improvement project along a nine-mile stretch of US 89 between Timberline Trail and Deadman Flat Road near Flagstaff (mileposts 425-434). The project is scheduled for completion by the end of July.
The $2 million pavement improvement project will include the application of a micro seal, restriping, and replacing pavement markers. Also included will be the installation of rumble strips, a road safety feature that alerts drivers when they drift outside of a travel lane.
Crews are scheduled to work Monday through Friday between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day. No weekend work will be included in this project. Motorists can expect US 89 to be narrowed to one lane with reduced speeds throughout the work zone. The northbound lanes of US 89 will be completed first, with the southbound lanes to follow.
During the micro seal phase of this project, cross streets in the work zone will need to be closed in intervals lasting up to 15 minutes. Please expect delays and plan accordingly. Drivers are also advised to proceed through the work zone with caution, follow all posted speed limits, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
