State Route 87 resurfacing underway

Three projects to resurface State Route 87 are underway in the East Valley and north of Sunflower. The pavement-improvement work will not take place over the Labor Day holiday weekend. All three projects are scheduled for completion this fall.

Motorists who use SR 87, should check the project websites for the most up-to-date construction schedules. Factors such as weather and equipment maintenance can affect the work schedules:
  • SR 87 (Country Club Drive) narrowed to one lane at times near Mesa between the Loop 202 and Gilbert Road from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily Monday through Thursday
  • SR 87 (Arizona Avenue) narrowed in both directions near Chandler between Hunt Highway and Riggs Road from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily
  • SR 87 (Duthie-Martin Highway) narrowed in both directions north of Sunflower between mileposts 218 – 225 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily Monday through Thursday
