The Arizona Department of Transportation is improving a section of pavement on U.S. Highway 60 between Apache Junction and Gold Canyon (mileposts 200-209) beginning Sunday, June 7, through Thursday, June 11.

Crews will narrow U.S. 60 traffic eastbound between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Sunday, June 7, and Monday, June 8, while westbound U.S. 60 will be reduced to one lane between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Tuesday, June 9, and Wednesday, June 10, according to a press release.

Drivers should prepare for minor delays through the work zone. Law enforcement will be on-site to monitor traffic.

This restriction is part of an on-going project to improve sections of pavement throughout the state.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule, according to the release.
