State Route 87 Roadway Improvement Project

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is making improvements to drainage and erosion control and making roadway surface repairs to State Route 87 approximately 20 miles south of Payson within Gila County. Work will occur between mileposts 222 and 231.

Drivers should expect lane closures while work is underway.  One lane of travel will be maintained at all times; however drivers should anticipate delays. Allow extra time for travel, observe reduced speeds in the work zone and be alert for crews and equipment.  

What to Expect
  • Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction between mileposts 223-226. 
  • The restriction will be place 24/7  including weekends with the exception of Labor Day weekend.
  • Construction is anticipated to be complete in fall 2017
