Reconstruction begins this week on SR 87 intersection in Coolidge

Posted

A project will begin June 19 that is designed improve safety and traffic flow at the intersection of State Route 87 and Skousen Road in northwest Coolidge.

The project will reconstruct the intersection, which is about a mile west of the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, while adding a traffic signal and lighting, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Construction also includes new lanes. The project will add a lane on SR 87 west of Skousen Road to allow for right turns onto Skousen Road. And both directions of Skousen Road will feature new left-turn lanes for traffic turning onto SR 87.

During construction, motorists should expect temporary traffic signals to control traffic moving through the intersection. One lane of travel will be maintained in each direction throughout the project, ADOT officials said.

Work is expected to take place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The project is expected to be completed in early 2025.
