The schedule for the U.S. 60 Pinto Creek Bridge project has been updated.

The following restrictions are scheduled to start Jan. 6:

  • Monday, Jan. 6 – Lane restrictions and flaggers between 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 7 – Full closure from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lane restrictions and flaggers, if needed, between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. 
  • Wednesday, Jan . 8 – Lane restrictions and flaggers between 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, Jan. 9 – Full closure from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lane restrictions and flaggers, if needed, between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
  • Friday, Jan. 10 – Lane restrictions and flaggers between 6:30 a.m. and noon.

During the Tuesday and Thursday full closures, all eastbound vehicles will be redirected at State Route 177 in Superior, and westbound vehicles will be redirected at the west end of Miami. Traffic will not be allowed to queue at the closure locations.

Because of the potential for long delays, motorists may want to plan trips before or after the full closures.

In addition to the Pinto Creek restrictions, work is on-going for a paving and guardrail project between Superior and Top-of-the-World. Motorists should anticipate lane restrictions with flaggers and pilot cars while crews replace guardrails.

Drivers should proceed with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

U.S. 70 passing lane project east of Globe to begin January 6

Motorists along U.S. 70 east of Globe on the San Carlos Apache Reservation should expect intermittent lane closures and delays starting Monday, Jan. 6.

Crews will begin a project to extend the eastbound passing lane along U.S. 70 between Globe and Peridot. Work will take place between mileposts 260 and 262.

The project includes the following elements:

  • Widening the roadway
  • Milling and repaving the travel lanes
  • Extending culverts

Drivers should plan for intermittent lane restrictions through late summer 2020, primarily during daytime hours Monday through Thursday. Motorists can expect shoulder closures, single-lane travel, or flagger stations with possible pilot car operations depending on the type of work being completed.

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