Cottonwood AZ (UDPATE – April 22, 2014) – The Arizona Department of Transportation will perform maintenance work Wednesday night (not Tuesday night as previously mentioned) to improve a two-mile section of State Route 260 between Cottonwood and Camp Verde.
SR 260 will be narrowed to one lane between Thousand Trails Road and Coury Drive (mileposts 211 to 212) from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, April 23.
Flaggers and a pilot car will direct traffic in alternating directions using the single lane that is open. The speed limit will be reduced to 25 mph and drivers can expect delays of up to 30 minutes.
