Roundabout closure moves to Airline Boulevard

PRESCOTT – The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will close Airline Boulevard at the intersection of Arizona State Route 87 in Payson from 6 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30 until noon on Friday, October 15. The closure will provide a safe work zone for crews constructing the new roundabout.

In addition to the closure at Airline Boulevard, a left turn restriction will be in place for northbound State Route 87 traffic to access Airport Road between the hours of 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Traffic from Airport Road will not be able to turn left to access northbound State Route 87 and the speed limit has been reduced to 25 miles per hour in the work zone.

During the Airline Boulevard closure, motorists can access residential and business properties via a clearly marked detour on the north and south boundaries of the project work zone. The detour will direct drivers from Glade Lane and Rancho Road for access to Airline Boulevard.

As always, drivers are reminded to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
