The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is performing a shoulder widening project along State Route 64 (SR 64) near the town of Tusayan in Coconino County beginning at the Grand Canyon National Airport access road (milepost 234 to 235), skipping the town of Tusayan, and ending just south of the southern boundary of the Grand Canyon National Park (milepost 237).

This project is part of ADOT's statewide shoulder widening program and will improve lane departures for motorists on SR 64.

What to expect:

• Work to be performed during daylight hours, Monday to Thursday; Fridays as needed

• No nighttime, weekend or holiday work is anticipated

• Construction is anticipated to be completed fall, 2016

• Access for both north- and southbound travel will be accommodated

During construction lane closures can be expected to accommodate crews and equipment. Traffic control will be primarily lane shifts that will allow for north- and southbound travel with minimal delays. Delays can be anticipated; allow for extra time for travel in the construction zone.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned roadway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather also can affect a project schedule.
