Road shift scheduled on US 191 in Clifton as improvement project continues

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for restrictions on US 191 as a safety-improvement project in Clifton continues.

The $668,000 project is located in Greenlee County on US 191 beginning at Smelter Hill and extending to Horseshoe Curve.Work began in September and is scheduled for completion in spring 2018.

The approximate length of the project is 2.5 miles (from milepost 162.5 to milepost 165). The work consists of makingdrainage improvements; installing sidewalk ramps that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act; makingsidewalk, curb and gutter improvements; and installing pavement markings and traffic-slowing devices such as dynamic speed display signs and speed tables. Similar to speed bumps in a roadway but longer and flatter, speed tables are designed to raise the entire wheelbase of a vehicle to slow it down.

The following overnight restrictions are scheduled to occur from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, through Monday, Nov. 20:
Northbound and southbound travel lanes on US 191 will be shifted to the north of the existing roadway near the Morenci Post Office. Speed limits will be reduced from 35 mph to 15 mph.
Comb Street will be closed at US 191. To access neighborhoods north and south of US 191, drivers can take Gomez Loop and Chase Creek Street, respectively.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
