Paving project on 87 begins this week

PRESCOTT – The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin a project this week to repave a seven-mile segment of State Route 87 approximately 30 miles south of Payson near Sunflower (mileposts 218 – 225). The work will include removal of a layer of the existing pavement, repaving the roadway, and drainage improvements.

Work hours will be 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Drivers can expect alternating lane restrictions in both directions with minimal delays through the work zone. Vehicles will be limited to a maximum width of 14 feet and the speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph.
The $2.7 million project is scheduled for completion by the end of September.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
