ADOT Planning Intermittent Overnight Full Closures Of State Route 89A In Oak Creek Canyon This Week

ADOT is planning for intermittent overnight full closures of State Route 89A near Pumphouse Wash Bridge in Oak Creek Canyon this week. The closure will be a three-mile section of 89A and will be closed beginning Monday night, 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. through Friday morning. The road will be closed intermittently to traffic through the switchbacks portion of the road, between Pumphouse Wash Bridge and Oak Creek Vista. The 15-minute, non-consecutive, full closures will occur twice per hour Monday through Friday. The restrictions are needed so crews can place traffic-control barriers on the roadway for the State Route 89A Oak Creek Canyon Improvements project, which includes rockfall mitigation, erosion control and a bridge rehabilitation. The right-turn lane on northbound State Route 89A at Pine Ridge Drive will also be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday for crews to perform drainage and ditch maintenance.
