Plan for restrictions on SR88 as roadway improvements continue

Posted

The Arizona Department of Transportation in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service started a project to pave and make other improvements to an 11-mile gravel section of State Route 88 between Apache Lake and the Theodore Roosevelt Dam.

The work includes installing an aggregate base and covering it with a chip seal, in addition to improving drainage features that are not functional or have been damaged by flooding. The project will also improve sight lines at five locations, according to a release.

The project is intended to improve the resilience of the roadway during heavy rainfall and to reduce the amount of repair work required after flooding.

Work is scheduled from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. The project is expected to take one year to complete.

Drivers should plan for flagging operations and temporary closures of up to 20 minutes while crews are working. Also, motorists should prepare to slow down and allow for extra travel time.
