Arizona Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan for alternating lane closures on east- and westbound U.S. 60 between the junction with State Route 71 (milepost 85) and Vulture Mine Road (milepost 108) while crews complete crack-fill work.

Restrictions will occur weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Monday, Jan. 13, and ending Friday, Jan. 31.

• US 60 will be narrowed to one lane only with alternating east- and westbound travel.

• Flaggers will direct drivers through the work zone.

• The speed limit will be reduced to 25 mph.

The preservation work, which protects against erosion and extends the life of pavement, is part of multiple pavement preservation projects on highways across the state.

Drivers should proceed with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

 Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.
