￼PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation will be revitalizing long stretches of State Routes 260 and 273 in the White Mountains region with an oil flush beginning Wednesday, May 9. Drivers heading to the area should prepare for delays while crews work.
In each situation, one lane will be closed and workers will flag traffic through the work zone using a pilot car. Drivers should expect delays of up to 30 minutes while work is occurring.
Work will take place each day from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. All sections of both highways are anticipated to be completed before the end of next week.
Fog sealing is a process by which crews apply oil to restore flexibility to a road surface, helping extend its life.
Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For more information, please call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov.
