US 180 narrowed to one lane between St. Johns and Springerville Sept. 5 – 14

The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan for traffic delays on US 180 between
St. Johns and Springerville beginning Wednesday, Sept. 5, as work resumes on a pavement preservation project.
US 180 is scheduled to remain narrowed to one lane of alternating north- and southbound travel through Friday, Sept. 14. Traffic restrictions will be in place from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Traffic-control personnel will direct motorists through the work zone using a pilot car with flaggers.
The $1.4 million project is located 8 miles north of the junction with US 60 and continues north to St. Johns, between mileposts 386 and 369.
Crews will be working in 1- to 2-mile increments along the nearly 18-mile work zone. This will enable crews to reopen portions of the roadway as they complete work and move on to pave other sections of the road. US 180 will reopen to two lanes of travel after crews finish each day.
With the pavement surface treatment called chip seal already completed, crews will spend the remainder of the project applying permanent striping to the roadway.
