Single Lane Restrictions May 15-16

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for daytime lane restrictions on State Route 79 north of Florence Wednesday, May 15, and Thursday, May 16, for pavement preservation work.

Crews are scheduled to complete an oil flush both days between 6 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. between the Florence city limits and US 60 (mileposts 138 to 150).

State Route 79 will be reduced to a single lane with traffic controlled by flaggers and a pilot car. Drivers should expect delays of up to 30 minutes.

Motorists should allow extra travel time and use caution around construction personnel and equipment while work is underway.
