Dry Creek Road detours continue

Post Date:08/29/2018 12:17 p.m.

SEDONA, Ariz. -- Paving work on Dry Creek / Boynton Pass Road will require lane closures and a detour beginning Sept. 4 and 5, and continuing on Sept. 13, contingent on weather conditions.

Traffic will be restricted to northbound travel only between White Bear and Thunder Mountain roads.

Southbound Dry Creek Road traffic and residents exiting the Kachina and Arroyo Seco subdivisions will be detoured via Thunder Mountain Road to Andante Drive where they can then access State Route 89A.

The detour will occur during work hours, generally from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Dry Creek Road is expected to be open in both directions at the end of each work day.

Temporary detours will be appropriately signed. Anticipate delays and obey all traffic control signs and traffic control personnel.

The entire project is expected to be complete in mid-September.

Additional information about the project 

Cactus Asphalt, in conjunction with Yavapai County and the city is performing the roadwork on Boynton Pass Road, Boynton Canyon Road and Dry Creek Roads north and south in the Sedona area.

Construction will continue through early October. Road construction will consist of milling and overlay of Dry Creek Road south with a rubberized chip application. Dry Creek Road north, Boynton Pass Road and Boynton Canyon Road construction will consist of a rubberized chip seal application and overlay of existing asphalt. Minor drainage improvements will be completed in the project area as well. Day use parking in the project area will be limited to designated trailhead areas, and access may be limited by construction activities. Motorists may encounter lane restrictions, reduced speeds, and flagging operations throughout the work zones. Motorists should expect minor delays and allow extra time to get through the construction areas. Please follow all traffic control devices when traveling through the work zone.
