ADOT Video of US 89 Landslide Repair

adot blogSedona AZ (December 5, 2014)The Arizona Department of Transportation has a new time-lapse video that runs one-minute, 22-seconds which represents about three and a half months of roadway construction work. In that time, crews on the Arizona US 89 landslide repair project have been busy blasting and moving dirt and rock material. By the end of the project, ADOT will have moved about one million cubic yards.

Watch the time lapse video here.

You will learn more about the AZ US 89 landslide repair project by visiting www.azdot.gov/US89. The repair work includes moving the roadway alignment about 60 feet away from the landslide area and stabilizing the new road by constructing a down slope buttress. That buttress is being created with the excavated material from the landslide area.

ADOT anticipates completion of the US 89 repair and opening the new segment for travel by early summer 2015.

  1. Traffic will be diverted onto the new alignment directly adjacent to the existing US 89 through the community of Cameron, approximately 50 miles north of Flagstaff. In addition to switching traffic to a new alignment, the recently completed roundabout at the US 89/State Route 64 junction will also be opened.

    These improvements are part of a project which includes widening US 89 to two lanes in each direction between SR 64 and the Little Colorado River, replacement of the existing US 89 Cameron truss bridge and installation of a roundabout, with new lighting and pedestrian facilities throughout the project area. Travel will continue on the existing bridge while the new bridge is being constructed. The roadway and bridge improvement project is expected to be completed in fall 2016.

    Traffic delays may occur during construction with traffic reduced to one lane. There will be directional signage and flaggers present during construction. ADOT advises motorists to be alert for construction equipment and personnel, and to proceed through the work zone with caution.

  3. Improved safety and reduced congestion are key goals in placing a Department of Public Service (DPS) Officer at ADOT’s TOC:

    Through a collaborative effort among ADOT, the Department of Public Safety, the Federal Highway Administration and the Maricopa Association of Governments, a new program was recently launched that stations DPS officers at the Traffic Operations Center.

    Check out the latest ADOT blog and video to learn why having a DPS officer on site will be extremely beneficial.
