Rock removal project on State Route 87 north of Payson starts Sept. 25
PHOENIX – To improve safety and reduce the chance for rockfalls, the Arizona Department of Transportation will be starting a rock removal project on State Route 87 7 miles north of the State Route 260 junction on Monday, Sept. 25.
Drivers should budget extra travel time for moving through the 2-mile project area between mileposts 285 and 287. A pilot car will be in place to guide traffic through the work zone. Drivers should prepare for 20-minute delays.
This work, which will occur Mondays through Fridays between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., will take several weeks to complete. There will be no work over the Columbus Day weekend.
