US 60 Silver King and Superior Streets project requires closure of Stone Avenue
As the Arizona Department of Transportation continues to make progress on the project to widen US 60 near Superior, motorists should be aware that construction activity will require the closure of Stone Avenue beginning April 18th. The closure is expected to last at least 6 months.
DETOUR: local traffic north and south of the US 60 is encouraged to use Church Avenue as an alternative, while the closure is in effect.
ADOT is working to widen the Silver King and Superior Streets sections of US 60, the last two remaining sections of the highway between the Phoenix metropolitan area and Superior that have not yet been converted into a modern, four-lane divided highway.
The project, which will improve traffic flow and enhance safety along the corridor, will continue the improvement of US 60 from the East Valley through Superior and the State Route 177 junction. The divided highway will be extended to the western boundary of Superior near Silver King Road (mileposts 222-227).
In addition, the urban section through Superior will be converted to a four-lane roadway with a raised median and will include separate left-hand turn lanes.
Work will start on the west side of the project by the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, where crews will start constructing two additional lanes. The new divided highway will be constructed north of the current highway and will tie back into the highway near the Superior Municipal Airport.
The US 60 Silver King/Superior Streets project is expected to be completed by early 2018.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
