State Route 88 (Apache Trail) paving work begins Monday, Feb. 26

Improvements will start near Tortilla Flat, Canyon Lake
February 23, 2018

PHOENIX – Drivers who travel on part of State Route 88 (Apache Trail) east of Apache Junction should allow extra travel time and anticipate delays at times when pavement improvements start Monday, Feb. 26.

The work will begin with the removal of old pavement along SR 88 in the Canyon Lake Marina and Tortilla Flat areas from midnight to 9 a.m. Monday followed by paving from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, and Wednesday, Feb. 28, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Flagging crews and a pilot vehicle will be used to guide traffic through the work zone one direction at a time. A 10-foot vehicle-width restriction will be in place in the work zone.

The milling operation to remove old pavement will resume from midnight to 9 a.m. Friday, March 2. Crews then plan to pave during daytime hours Monday through Thursday until late March. Milling work is scheduled for early morning hours on Fridays as crews continue working along SR 88 between mileposts 202 and 213.

The paving is part of ADOT’s ongoing $6.5 million improvement project along the 11-mile stretch of the historic Apache Trail between Apache Junction and the Tortilla Flat area. The project is scheduled for completion by late summer.
