Sedona AZ (November 2, 2013) – The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will be improving a five-mile stretch of State Route 89A within the Coconino National Forest during summer 2014.
In order to complete the work in a safe and timely manner, ADOT will be closing SR 89A for up to five weeks between mileposts 386.60 and 390.07 which is through the Oak Creek Canyon switchbacks.
The work includes milling the existing asphalt and repaving the highway with rubberized asphalt, replacing guardrail, repairing a bridge deck, and mitigating for falling rocks.
ADOT representatives, with the assistance of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce, have set up a meeting for the business community in Sedona at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, November 19, 2013, to give local business owners background behind the design and construction of the paving project. The meeting will be held in Wayside Chapel’s Jordan Hall (401 North State Route 89A on west side, north of Apple Avenue & Matterhorn Shoppes).
