ADOT Reminds Travelers Of State Route 260 Restrictions Near Payson Beginning Monday

The Arizona Department of Transportation is reminding motorists and travelers of daytime delays on State Route 260 between Heber-Overgaard and Payson over the next five months. Delays of up to 30 minutes will occur due to crews improving the pavement, guardrails, drainage system, as well as re-striping the roadway and widening the shoulder lanes. The project will cost $24.9 million to improve the safety along a 21-mile stretch of roadway. Crews will be narrowing one mile of the roadway at a time from Old Rim Road to Aspen Lane. Road work will take place Mondays through Thursdays beginning August 8th at 5 a.m. and ending December 30th at 5 p.m. During work hours, flaggers will be guiding traffic, a 14-foot vehicle-width limit will be in place, and the speed limit will be reduced to 25-miles-per-hour. The project is expected to continue through the fall of 2024. ADOT reminds residents and travelers to slow down and use caution while traveling near crews and equipment.
