Intermittent overnight closures are needed next week to remove loose rock as part of new passing lane project

Motorists traveling on US 60 between Superior and Globe/Miami should allow extra travel time and plan for short delays overnight Monday through Wednesday, July 27-29 while construction crews remove loose rocks as part of the new Oak Flat passing lane project (milepost 231-233).

Work hours will be from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. Monday through Wednesday nightly and all traffic restrictions will be lifted at approximately 4 a.m. on Thursday, July 30.

A pilot car will be used to guide traffic through the construction zone as intermittent closures are necessary to complete the work. Motorists should anticipate delays of up to 15 minutes. The speed limit will be reduced through the construction zone and drivers are asked to use caution 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.
