A recent ADOT traffic study found the majority of Sedona traffic backs up miles to drive through the Sedona city limits, and continues on without stopping in order to reach Flagstaff and Grand Canyon.

About the project:

This project — the Sedona in Motion Uptown Roadway Improvements project — will improve traffic flow, and the appearance and community feel of Sedona’s Uptown area through a combination of street, hardscape and landscape improvements. Project elements have been designed to control traffic flow and remove a variety of causes of slow-downs.

Included in this project:

Decorative raised median to direct pedestrians to controlled crossings and enhance the appearance of Uptown.
Addition of a southbound SR 89A travel lane.
Turnaround points at the north and south ends of Uptown, including a Jordan Road roundabout.
One-way access from 89A to free parking via Schnebly Road.
Pedestrian control and signal timing improvements at the intersection of SR 89A and Forest Road.

    That is so unintentionally appropriate.

    sim (plural sims)

    (informal) A simulation or simulator.
    They played a flight sim all afternoon.

    Sedona in Motion is a sim, a simulation, of a solution.

    Nothing will change in the end, but you will be diverted and your time wasted during the construction. Good thing the city has professional management to screw things up. Of course voting in the city was the root cause of these problems.
