Project to resurface US 60 north of Globe starting Aug. 6
Drivers should expect narrowed lanes and reduced speed limit
GLOBE– A pavement improvement project to resurface four miles of US 60 from the US 60/70 Junction in Globe to the Gila County Fairgrounds (mileposts 252-256) will begin Aug. 6, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
The $431,000 project, which is scheduled for completion by the end of August, will involve the placement of a microseal surface on the roadway. A microseal is a mixture of asphalt, water, and small rock that preserves and extends the life of the pavement.
Work is scheduled to start in Globe at the US60/70 junction and proceed north. Flaggers and pilot cars will be used to guide vehicles through the work zone in alternating directions and drivers should anticipate delays up to 30 minutes.
Work hours will be from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Traffic lanes will be narrowed and the speed limit will be reduced through the work zone.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
