GLOBE – The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for overnight lane restrictions and delays on U.S. Highway 60 and U.S. Highway 70 near Globe and Miami starting Sunday, May 31.

Crews will be completing pavement preservation work from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. each night in the following locations:

  • U.S. Highway 60 between Miami and the Pinto Creek Bridge (milepost 238 to 243). Motorists should expect pilot cars and alternating lane restrictions while crews complete crack sealing along this section of the highway.
  • U.S. Highway 60 from Miami to Globe (milepost 243 to 252). Motorists will encounter intermittent delays while crews install new striping on the highway.
  • U.S. Highway 70 between Globe and Peridot (milepost 252 to 270). Motorists will encounter intermittent delays while crews install new striping on the highway. 

All of the work is expected to take about one week.

Motorists should allow extra travel time and use caution around construction personnel and equipment.
