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).

@hikeaz with total a length of ~272 miles, anybody who reads this notice might appreciate knowing which section of State Route 87 this affects.
(for those who don't want to look it up ... MP 201-204, which is in the vicinity of Bush Hwy to Four Peaks Road)

Reread.
Thanks!

@hikeaz Good grief that's insanely terrible of me. I apologize for my reply and the tone it took. My bad. :oops:

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) has a resource for the public which can help. E-Maps - https://azdeq.gov/emaps
From that landing page, pick one of the maps that has very few items on it - I choose "Non-attainment Areas". Click "View Map".
When you arrive at the map, click the "Layer List" icon in the upper right corner, and scroll through the list, and deselect the non-attainment areas, so they don't clutter the map.
Then scroll to the bottom. Near the bottom (7th from the bottom?), click "Mile Posts", and green dots will show up on all state highways and interstates.
Zoom in on the road in question (SR 87?), and see the mile posts you're interested in.
NB! - County roads aren't included - most notably Lake Mary Road from Flagstaff down to its junction with SR87 near Clint's Well. It belongs to Coconino County, so there are no mile posts listed. Grrr!
I use this resource A LOT when I'm making directions for myself to get to sections of the Arizona Trail.
Enjoy!
