Construction coming to Highway 68
GOLDEN VALLEY - Construction of new turn lanes may cause traffic snags in Golden Valley starting Tuesday.
The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin building three westbound right-turn lanes along State Route 68 to improve traffic mobility. The new turning lanes will be located at Roosevelt Drive, Verde Road and Marana Drive.
While there will be limited travel impacts, motorists are urged to comply with the posted speed limit and be aware of construction equipment and personnel. Crews will be working Monday through Thursday, 6 a.m.-5 p.m.
The $320,000 project is expected to be complete in August.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there are always possibilities of unscheduled closures or restrictions. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
