Sedona AZ (July 4, 2012) - Repaving of Arizona State Route 89A in Sedona from Arroyo Piñon Drive to just west of State Route 179 will begin Sunday evening, July 8, 2012 according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Paving will continue until the beginning of August and will require overnight lane restrictions from 6:30 p.m. to 6 a.m, daily from Sunday evening through Friday morning, each week.
Crews will also be paving a number of side streets off State Route 89A including Mountain Shadows, Northview, and Posse Ground. This work will require lane closures and turning restrictions between 6:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily from Monday evening through Friday morning next week.
Additionally, crews will be completing installation of electrical foundations for the roadway lighting fixtures along SR 89A during daytime hours. This work will require intermittent single lane restrictions throughout the work zone between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
The work is part of the $4.3 million roadway and safety improvement project that began in late February 2012. The project includes paving of more than three miles of SR 89A between Arroyo Piñon Drive to just west of State Route 179, a new traffic signal at Andante Drive, and roadway lighting from Dry Creek Road to Airport Drive.
Installation of the roadway lighting fixtures will begin after paving is completed. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of August 2012.
