Paving work continues on US 60 in Gold Canyon
To better accommodate traffic flow in the area, the schedule for paving work along US 60 through Gold Canyon has changed, with paving now set for 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 3) and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday next week (Dec. 7-9).
Arizona Department of Transportation crews are replacing worn pavement at intersections in the area east of Apache Junction between Mountain View Road and the highway crossover east of Kings Ranch Road. The work requires lane closures and turn restrictions.
Community members urged ADOT to address deteriorated pavement in the intersections, and the agency made the work a safety priority after assessing roadway conditions.
When an intersection or other location is closed to traffic because of the resurfacing work, drivers will be directed to a nearby intersection or crossover. Drivers are urged to plan ahead, allow extra travel time and use caution when traveling on or turning along US 60 in the Gold Canyon area.
