Utility line work requires short nighttime closures of State Route 260
Drivers who use State Route 260 near Cherry Creek Road should plan for overnight closures this week and next while APS works on overhead utility lines. To perform this work safely, several intermittent 20-minute closures of the roadway in both directions are required overnight on both Thursday, Feb. 15, and Tuesday, Feb. 20. Work is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. and end by 5 a.m. the following morning.
Drivers should expect delays and allow extra travel time.
Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.

To enhance safety and improve traffic flow in a growing area of the Verde Valley, the Arizona Department of Transportation is upgrading nine miles of State Route 260 to four-lane divided highway between Camp Verde and Cottonwood west of Interstate 17.
The $62 million project, which began in early March, will create seven roundabout intersections at Thousand Trails Road, Coury Drive, Cherry Creek Road, Horseshoe Bend Drive, Wilshire Road and two locations that will accommodate future development.
