Sedona AZ (June 18, 2015) – The City of Sedona pavement repair work on AZ SR 89A in uptown Sedona is progressing on schedule.

“While the uptown paving project has presented some challenges, the contractor has been very responsive to issues and kept the project on schedule,” states Andy Dickey, Assistant Community Development Director/City Engineer.

Businesses in uptown Sedona are open and parking is available along AZ SR 89A with minimal restrictions due to construction. In addition, public parking is available at various locations.

Construction hours are Mondays through Thursdays, 5:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Fridays from 5:00 a.m. to 1:00 in the afternoon. No work will be done on Saturdays and Sundays. In addition, no construction will take place during the Fourth of July weekend (July 3, 4 and 5) or the weekend of Sedona Main Street Program’s National Day of the Cowboy event (July 24, 25 and 26).

This paving project includes pavement replacement between Forest Road and just north of Art Barn Road. It will occur in the travel lane portion of the road only, and will not include the on-street parking areas.

The road is in failing condition, due in part to the 25,000 vehicles that travel the road each day based on a yearly average. The repair work will not just address the surface of the road, but will also rebuild portions of the subgrade, thereby improving smooth safe travel and reducing the need for future disturbances to perform repairs.

Major paving work is scheduled for completion by July 31, 2015, and all work completed by August 7, 2015, if there are no significant delays.

Traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times. When construction delays are necessary, the goal is a maximum delay of 15 minutes. The City urges motorists to be safe and patient when passing through the work zone.

The City will post background information and frequent status updates in order to keep citizens informed as the project progresses. For questions, please contact Stephen Craver, Engineering Supervisor, at (928) 203-5059 or email SCraver@SedonaAZ.gov.

    There will be some minor traffic control starting at 7 p.m. It is anticipated that work will be completed by 10 p.m. on the same night. Low wattage lighting will be used around the manhole areas for work zone lighting. No digging or boring will done during this project.

  3. A MoveOn member named Sedona Drum Community recently created a petition on our public petition website entitled “SAVE Our Drum Ceremony on Cathedral Rock Sedona”—and we’d like to know what you think of it.

    The petition is addressed to Sedona City Coucil and Mayor Sandy Moriarty, and reads:

    Stop the Proposed Stipulations that are tandemed with the Parking Lot changes, clearly designed to stop our Ceremony.

    Sign Sedona’s petition.


    Here’s what Sedona wrote about it:

    We as community members of Sedona Az have gathered on Cathedral Rock at FullMoon for our Drum Circle Ceremony for a minimum of 20 years.
    We go to Worship, to Pray, to Drum, to Dance, to Celebrate, to Bring More Peace to Our World.

    Our circle is open to All and many visitors join us and share that it is a once in a lifetime experience that they will always carry with them.

    The Land is US Forest Service and we have our right to use it. We gather just 8 times a year out of 365, for a few hours and are deserving of compromise.

    Can you click to let us know what you think?

    I want to sign this petition.


    I don’t think MoveOn should support this petition.

    We’ll decide whether to send this petition out to additional MoveOn members in your area based on your feedback.


    In case you haven’t heard about it, MoveOn’s petition site allows anyone to start an online petition and share it with friends and neighbors to build support for their cause.

    Thanks for all you do.

    Milan, Maria, Manny, Bobby, and the rest of the team
