COTTONWOOD -- Meeting in Cottonwood at 9 a.m. Monday, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will hear a presentation of the intergovernmental agreement that the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) wants signed by the seven Verde Valley governments on State Route 260 being widened to four lanes.

The agreement is intended to stipulate consensus on the restrictions of the roadway before ADOT considers a contract to upgrade the road. The state does not want to endure the same conflict that preceding the proposed upgrade 10 years ago.

A key stipulation is that there will be only seven access points onto the widened highway from Thousand Trails to Interstate 17. Because the partners in Camp Verde could not agree on that point last time, ADOT only upgraded the section west of Verde Village where there was agreement. This time around it has been the Town of Camp Verde that has been leading the charge.

ADOT wants the consensus agreement before the end of the year.

The state has committed $66 million for the upgrade, which could be withdrawn without the agreement among the five cities and towns, the Yavapai-Apache Nation and Yavapai County.

The meeting will be held in the Yavapai County Verde Valley Complex Hearing Room, at 10 S. Sixth St., Cottonwood.

I know Steve Coury wants a traffic light on 260. If that is going to happen, then I suggest a frontage road that will take Thousand Trails and the motorplex to the traffic light at Steve Coury. This will make it safer for the traffic on 260 driving 50+ and those vehicle with trailers turn at 5+ mph on the left and right turns.

We have nobody driving at legal speeds that has a problem with 260. At the same time we have Public Education and CPS that have been promised monies that they are not receiving.

Why not put in a 6 lane hwy and get it over with.Sedona visiters deserve a faster way to
get there.
They screwed up their entry points so they'll just use ours.More room for tractor trailers
and pollution.The sunsets will be amazing.
