US 60 east of Superior to close briefly for blasting operations Sept. 15-17

Passing-lane project continues with five 90-minute closures;

ADOT urges motorists to plan ahead or allow extra travel time

Motorists traveling along US 60 between Phoenix and Globe next week need to plan ahead or allow extra time as the Arizona Department of Transportation continues blasting work as part of an improvement project to build a new passing lane and widen roadway shoulders east of Superior, approximately 65 miles east of downtown Phoenix.

The construction of the two-mile-long climbing lane from Devil’s Canyon to Oak Flat (mileposts 231-233) will require five separate full closures of US 60 for up to 90 minutes:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 15, at 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and again from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
  • Thursday, Sept. 17, at 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and again from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Traffic oeastbound US 60 will be stopped east of Superior (milepost 227) and westbound US 60 will be stopped at the Top of the World, west of Miami (milepost 235) until the blasting work is completed and the roadway is reopened after all debris is cleared. Law enforcement officers will be stationed at each closure to assist with traffic control.

ADOT anticipates the highway will be closed at least once per week for blasting for up to three months. As blasting continues there will be a lesser impact on traffic and delays will be reduced.

Motorists seeking an alternate route can consider state routes 77 and 177, which is approximately 68 miles long. Motorists headed to the White Mountains region, including Show Low and Springerville, can also take State Route 87 through Payson and travel east on State Route 260 as an alternative.

The $8.8 million safety improvement project will make it easier for motorists to pass large trucks and slow-moving vehicles whose speed drops because of the sustained grades along this stretch of highway from Devil’s Canyon to the Oak Flat area.

The project will include the following:

  • Construction of a new westbound passing lane from Devil’s Canyon to Oak Flat (mileposts 231-233)
  • Widening shoulders in the Devil’s Canyon area (mileposts 233-234)
  • Improvements to the Waterfall Canyon bridge (milepost 229)
  • Box culvert drainage improvements (milepost 242 just west of Miami)


ADOT will work to minimize the traffic impacts as much as possible, including scheduling some nighttime work.


There will be narrow traffic lanes, wide-load restrictions and a reduced speed limit through the work zone. Flaggers and pilot cars will be used at different times throughout the project.


Drivers are asked to use caution, watch for construction equipment and personnel, and allow extra time for your commute.

Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

At Relay, teams of people camp out at Youngker High School and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 12 hours in length. Relay-ers do not have to walk all night, but each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.

Teams come from businesses, families, clubs, friends, hospitals, schools, churches, and service organizations. Each team is enouraged to raise money that goes towards the programs and services the American Cancer Society offers and funds critical cancer research.
