Closures Continue in Oak Creek Canyon

As work continues on improvements to State Route 89A through Oak Creek Canyon, the Arizona Department of Transportation will have a series of overnight closures of the highway beginning Monday, Aug. 15. Overnight full closures of SR 89A will happen nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Mondays through Fridays during the week of Aug. 15 and the week of Aug. 22 so crews can continue to safely work on improvements to the highway. The $11.1 million project started earlier this year and includes rockfall mitigation, erosion control and bridge rehabilitation.

The work is anticipated to be completed by late 2023.
