ADOT appreciates your patience during construction Ongoing improvement work along State Route 87 between Hunt Highway and State Route 287, on the Gila River Indian Community, is continuing on schedule. The project is designed to improve safety with the addition of eight-foot shoulders, turn lanes at intersections and new highway signs. While the entire $7.2 million project stretches more than 20 miles along SR 87, construction crews have recently concentrated their work on adding new shoulders along approximately ten miles of the highway. 
As part of the Ellsworth Road Interim Improvement Project, construction crews are scheduled to slurry seal and stripe Ellsworth Road from north of the Ocotillo Road intersection to south of the Rittenhouse Road intersection from April 18-20. 
Ellsworth Loop Road between Cloud and Aldecoa roads (street at post office) - Crews will be working in the  median and on the shoulder with limited, intermittent north- and southbound traffic restrictions. Work is anticipated to continue through Friday, April 26, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Arizona has already received its first taste of winter weather this November—an early start to the snow season. But the Arizona Department of Transportation has been preparing for its winter operations all year long, and now is the time when preparedness translates into action. Weather conditions in Arizona can find you driving from the sunny, moderate climate of the low desert into ice and snow in the state’s mountain regions in just a couple of hours. These types of winter storms can really cause havoc with travel plans and businesses. And it means that ADOT—and drivers—need to be prepared.
Motorists traveling along US 60 between Phoenix and Globe on Thursday morning, Aug. 13, need to plan ahead or allow extra time as the Arizona Department of Transportation begins blasting work as part of a project to build a new passing lane and widen roadway shoulders east of Superior.
