SR87 - aka Beeline Hwy

Post by chumley »

The engineering cluster :pk: that is the entire Slate Creek area is once again going under the ADOT knife.

The Beeline will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction until fall so that crews can once again attempt to prevent the whole area from sliding down the hill.

So, be prepared for slow traffic in the general Sunflower / Mt. Ord / Slate Creek area (about 20 miles south of Payson).

Count on both ways after all this is the "Beeline". ](*,) :lol:

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan ahead for alternating lane closures on north- and southbound State Route 87 (Beeline Highway) between Fort McDowell Road, north of Fountain Hills, and Four Peaks Road from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Monday, April 19, 2021, through Thursday, April 22, 2021 for pavement maintenance.
Note: Crews will work within approximately 5-mile segments at a time. Additional daytime SR 87 work is planned in May at milepost 217 in Sunflower. The restriction schedule is subject to change.
