Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider an alternate route
The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers who use State Route 89 in Prescott to plan for extended closures while urgently needed pavement repair work is underway.  Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes while the following restrictions are in place:

  • SR 89 will be closed in both directions from State Route 89A to Deep Well Ranch Road from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.  Detour:  Drivers can use Deep Well Ranch Road to access north- and southbound SR 89. All truck traffic will be diverted to Willow Creek Road.
  • Flaggers will be in place directing traffic. ADOT will limit access to local traffic only, but delays are possible.
  • Drivers should obey traffic control devices and use caution around construction personnel and equipment.
