The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for alternating lane closures on north- and southbound State Route 89 near the town of Paulden from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. beginning Monday, May 10, through Thursday, May 13.
Motorists should expect delays of up to 30 minutes while the following restrictions are in place:
- SR 89 will be narrowed to one lane only with alternating north- and southbound travel between Forest Service Road 9012 (milepost 342) and Forest Service Road 9024 (milepost 345).
- Flaggers and a pilot car will direct drivers through the work zone.
The closures are needed for maintenance crews to apply a layer of asphaltic concrete to the roadway, which protects and extends the life of the pavement.
ADOT advises drivers to slow down and use caution around personnel and equipment while pavement repairs are underway.
