PHOENIX – As the widening project along US 60 between State Route 77 and 40th Street in Show Low wraps up for the winter, drivers should budget extra time early next week as crews stripe the road and put the traffic signal at US 60 and SR 77 in its final configuration.
Beginning Monday, Dec. 18, crews will put down final striping along US 60 in the project area. This must be done during the day, as overnight temperatures are too cold to apply the striping material. Striping work is expected to last a few days.
On Tuesday, Dec. 19, the traffic signals at the intersection of US 60 and SR 77, known locally as Penrod Road, will be shut off as crews work to program the new signal timing to accommodate the new road configuration. The signal will be shut down at 8 a.m. A uniformed officer will direct traffic through the intersection. Drivers should budget extra time and be prepared for delays.
The signal work is expected to be completed by the end of the day on Tuesday, Dec. 19.
Crews will return next summer to lay the final layer of asphalt and complete some sidewalk and landscaping work.
