Sedona Oak Creek Slide Rock Area to Get Cell Tower

Article submitted by City of Sedona AZ

Sedona AZ (December 7, 2016) – Can you hear this now? Motorists using AZ State Route 89A between Sedona and Flagstaff should allow extra travel time next week when the roadway is reduced to one lane near Slide Rock while a new cell tower is installed.

SR 89A will be narrowed to one lane between mileposts 381 and 384 from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, December 13, 2016 and Wednesday, December 14, 2016. Flaggers will be on site to provide alternating north and south bound travel through the work zone, and delays are possible.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions and closures, but it’s possible that unscheduled impacts might occur because of weather or other factors. For the most current information about highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT’s Travel Information Site at www.az511.gov, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT), or call 511 except while driving.

For more information, call Coralie Cole, ADOT senior community relations officer, at 602-501-4899 or email ccole@azdot.gov.

  1. Cell Tower and Cell Phone Danger says:

    “The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified RF fields as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans,’…”

    From American Cancer Society Website:
    What expert agencies say About cell phone towers

    The 3 expert agencies that usually classify cancer-causing exposures (carcinogens) – the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the National Toxicology Program (NTP), and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – have not classified cell phone towers specifically as to their cancer-causing potential.

    About RF radiation

    Some of the agencies that classify cancer-causing exposures have, however, made statements about radiofrequency radiation.

    The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified RF fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” based on limited evidence of a possible increase in risk for brain tumors among cell phone users, and inadequate evidence for other types of cancer. (For more information on the IARC classification system, see Known and Probable Human Carcinogens.) IARC also noted that exposure to the brain from RF fields from cell phone base stations (mounted on roofs or towers) is less than 1/100th the exposure to the brain from mobile devices such as cell phones.
