Crews will reduce roadway to one lane overnight
Drivers should allow extra travel time between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
Cottonwood AZ (March 31, 2017) – Overnight work will continue on SR 260 in Camp Verde near Interstate 17 as crews haul excess materials. SR 260 will be narrowed to one lane from Sunday, April 2 through Thursday, April 7 between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
Drivers will need to allow additional travel time as they will be guided through the work zone by flagging crews.
The $62 million safety improvement project in Yavapai County will upgrade a nine-mile segment of SR 260 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane, modern divided highway east of Cottonwood between Thousand Trails Road and the Interstate 17 junction in Camp Verde. The work is expected to take approximately 18 months to complete.
Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
