Flagstaff AZ (March 4, 2017) – Take your Time! Motorists using State Route 89A between Sedona and Flagstaff should allow extra travel time as work resumes on improvements between Vista Point Overlook and JW Powell Blvd intersection on Monday, March 6. State Route 89A will be reduced to one lane through the project work zone (milepost 390 – 398) weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The lane restriction begins Monday and continues weekly (except holidays) until fall. Flaggers and a pilot car escort will provide alternating travel through the work zone. Motorists should allow extra travel time.
The SR 89A improvement project, which began in 2016, will widen the highway and improve safety on 8.4 miles of SR 89A between Vista Point Overlook and the JW Powell Boulevard intersection. For more information on the project, please visit the project website at: azdot.gov/89A
Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
