US 60: State Route 77 to 40th Street | Show Low
Widening and Improvement Project
The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have initiated a $5 million project to widen and improve US 60, locally known as Deuce of Clubs, in Show Low. The purpose of the project is to increase capacity for all drivers and decrease congestion from heavy commercial truck traffic.
The work zone area encompasses east- and westbound US 60 from just east of the intersection with SR 77, locally known as Penrod Road, to 40th Street. When construction is complete, US 60 will be widened from one lane to two lanes in both directions with a center turn lane from east of SR 77 to 40th Street. Crews also will add a second designated left-turn lane at SR 77 and make lighting and other intersection improvements.
ADOT is maintaining access to all businesses in the work zone during the project.
The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for traffic restrictions over the next two weeks beginning Thursday, June 21, as part of the improvement project on the US 60 from State Route 77 to 40th Street in Show Low.
Motorists should use caution and allow plenty of extra travel time while the following restrictions are in place:
- Thursday, June 21, and Friday, June 22; and Wednesday, June 27, through Friday, June 29:
US 60 will be reduced to one lane in each direction within the work zone, from Adams Road to 40th Street, during daylight hours.
- Monday, June 25, and Tuesday, June 26: The intersection at US 60 and SR 77 (Penrod Road) will be closed overnight from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Motorists are advised to find alternate routes and avoid the area around the intersection to avoid long delays.
The upcoming traffic restrictions are needed as pavement work scheduled for the week of June 11 was postponed.
Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.
