SUPERIOR — A six-week project to repave a scenic stretch of U.S. 60 in northern Pinal County is nearly complete, the Arizona Department of Transportation says.
“We’re happy to share the news that crews have recently completed repaving the driving lanes on about 9 miles of U.S. 60, milling away the bumpy asphalt so two new layers of pavement can provide a smooth driving surface for years to come,” said ADOT spokesman Garin Groff.
The roughly six weeks of paving led to some long delays along the stretch of highway between Superior and Top of the World near the Gila County line. Groff said in a blog that drivers can still expect periodic lane restrictions and delays to continue through late September, but the delays will be limited to 15 minutes or less.
He said the restrictions are needed while crews continue work on final lane striping, rumble strips, guardrail and concrete barriers.
