PLAN FOR LANE RESTRICTIONS ON STATE ROUTE 277 EAST OF HEBER FOR PAVEMENT PRESERVATION WORK

Drivers who use State Route 277 near Heber should plan for lane restrictions and possible delays now through Thursday, Jan. 3, for pavement preservation work.
The Arizona Department of Transportation maintenance project from the junction with State Route 377 and end at the junction with State Route 260.
Motorists should expect intermittent delays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, along the 7-mile stretch of SR 277 east of Heber. There will be no travel restrictions on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
East- and westbound traffic will be reduced to one lane of alternating travel while the road work is done in ½-mile increments. Flaggers and a pilot car will be used to direct traffic within the work zone.
Crews will be filling cracks on the asphalt to reduce water infiltration and to reinforce the adjacent pavement. Crack filling is a common road maintenance activity that helps extend the life of the roadway.
