The Arizona Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration are making roadway improvements along a 3-mile stretch of US 191 near St. Johns. The construction activity, scheduled to occur during daylight hours, Mondays through Fridays, is requiring lane restrictions and extra travel time for drivers.
The $4.2 million project is needed to replace the pavement and reconstruct this segment of the highway as well as install a pipe culvert, signage and pavement markings.
Roadway work began on March 26, and the project is anticipated to be completed in November. Schedules are subject to change based on weather or other unforeseen factors.
- Drivers will share one lane of travel on US 191 during a large portion of the seven-month project, which is located between Cemetery and Generating Station roads (milepost 317 to 320).
- To accommodate motorists during the busiest part of construction – when the highway will be reduced to one lane from the start of the project through October – a temporary traffic signal and/or flaggers will be in place to allow for alternating north- and southbound travel through the work area.
- Motorists should plan for delays up to 30 minutes during peak commuting times.
