Travelers to Benefit from Safety Improvements on State Route 87 ADOT Project to Affect Area Between SR 287 and Hunt Highway

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

FLORENCE – The Arizona Department of Transportation will start construction on an improvement project along State Route 87 beginning the week of October 1, 2012.  The $8.5 million improvement project has been developed in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration and the Gila River Indian Community Department of Transportation.

 

Anticipated completion of this project is set for the week of May 10, 2013, however foul weather or temperature extremes could affect the schedule for this project.

 

Improvements will consist of repaving the highway, adding and widening shoulders, making intersection improvements, adding and extending turn lanes at intersections, installing signs and a number of other safety improvements throughout the 25-mile stretch of highway.  The project will start just west of the intersection with State Route 287 and will continue north to Hunt Highway in the vicinity of Arizona Avenue.

 

This is not a project initiated or managed by Pinal County.  The purpose in issuing this notice is to increase awareness and help residents plan for potential delays during certain phases of the project.  ADOT is working in coordination with the Gila River Indian Community Department of Transportation, San Carlos Irrigation and Drainage District and Pima-Maricopa Irrigation Project to coordinate schedules construction activities along State Route 87.

 

For more information about this project, you may visit ADOT’s Project web page http://www.azdot.gov/highways/Projects/SR87_SR287-HuntHwy/index.asp.   The site features a place to sign up for project updates via email.
