As part of an intersection improvement project at State Route 89A and State Route 260 in Cottonwood, crews will activate the new signal next week and overnight delays of up to 30 minutes are possible, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Tuesday, Nov. 12 and Wednesday, Nov. 13: Delays of up to 30 minutes possible between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. at the intersection of SR 89A and SR 260 as crews install and activate the new signal pole and remove the existing pole. Law enforcement will control and intersection during work hours.
Thursday, Nov. 14: A single-lane restriction on SR 89A, approaching the intersection, is expected between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. as crews work on the pavement.
Friday, Nov. 15: The right-turn lane will be restricted on SR 89A and the right lane on SR 260 will be closed between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. to allow a safe work zone as crews pour concrete for the new sidewalk.
To serve as a reminder, pedestrian traffic through the work zone will not be permitted as the sidewalk will be closed until Nov. 15.
The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage. The project is expected to be completed by the end of November.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
