State Route 88 Roundabout at Superstition Boulevard


State Route 88 intersection at Superstition Boulevard

Alternate access provided via marked detours in the area, please see the Detour Fact Sheet for more information.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is converting the existing intersection of State Route 88 and Superstition Boulevard in Apache Junction into a roundabout, and repaving the intersection at Idaho Road located one block to the south. The new roundabout will improve drivers’ lines -of sight for traffic merging onto and off of the highway and increase safety. Construction also includes drainage improvements, and new turnouts within the project area. The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2018.

Construction includes the following:

  • Convert the intersection at SR 88 and Superstition Boulevard into a roundabout
  • Realign SR 88 and widen Superstition Boulevard to match the roundabout configuration
  • Reconstruct turnouts to accommodate the new intersection
  • Install lighting
  • Reroute  Goldfield Wash around the new roadway
  • Construct onsite drainage
  • Install new signs and striping
  • Repave the intersection at Idaho Road

A temporary 30-day closure of the intersection at Superstition Boulevard will be required during mid-summer 2018. ADOT will accommodate travel through the area with detours with signage. Access to properties will be maintained at all times, however traffic may be restricted during construction.

What to Expect

  • Construction begins March 2018
  • Temporary detours will accommodate travel
  • Work occurring during daylight hours
  • No weekend or holiday construction is anticipated
