Drivers should plan for delays and allow extra travel time
The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for lane closures on north- and southbound State Route 89 between Rancho El Oso Road (milepost 285) to south of South Mina Road (milepost 276) in Yarnell for pavement repair.

Crack-seal work is scheduled to occur daily from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. beginning Tuesday, Dec. 11, through Friday, Dec. 14.

  • SR 89 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction with partial closures while work is underway.
  • Flaggers and a pilot-car operation will be in place directing traffic through the work zone.
  • The speed limit will be reduced from 45 mph to 35 mph.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
