Paving work nears completion on Hwy. 89 between Prescott, Chino: Project estimated to be complete by August

The widening project between Prescott and Chino Valley on Highway 89 is entering its final phase of construction, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT).

Paving work on the new roadway is scheduled at night for the next six weeks, weather permitting, states an ADOT news release.

Motorists traveling northbound on Highway 89 on Friday, June 5 will be shifted onto the new northbound roadway at milepost 323 to the north end of the project. ADOT is expecting no traffic delays.

For the next six weeks, drivers will need to be aware of increased construction activity and work in the median, and adhere to the reduced speed limit of 45 miles per hour, states the news release.

Upon completion of the $17 million project, ADOT will expand the two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided highway along a five-mile segment of Highway 89 (mileposts 320-325). The project involves the highway between Road 4 South in Chino Valley and Deep Well Ranch Road in Prescott, just north of the Highway 89/89A junction.

The project is expected to be complete by August.
