The Arizona Department of Transportation will restrict portions of U.S. Highway 60 between Signal Butte Road and Ironwood Drive during several evenings through May 22, according to a press release. The restrictions are part of the Meridian Road interchange project. Specific traffic restriction information is listed below:
•Westbound U.S. 60 will be reduced to one lane from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Wednesday, May 20, between Signal Butte and Meridian roads.
•Eastbound U.S. 60 will be reduced to one lane from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Thursday, May 21, between Signal Butte and Meridian roads and the Signal Butte off-ramp will be closed during the same time frame.
ADOT reminds drivers that Meridian Road is closed in both directions at U.S. Highway 60 to allow ADOT to build two new ramps connecting Meridian to the highway. The ramps will allow eastbound traffic to exit and westbound traffic to enter U.S. 60 at Meridian.
Meridian Road is expected to reopen to traffic by August, according to the release. The interchange project is expected to be completed at the end of this year.
