Plan for Uptown road closures the week of Feb. 23

Post Date:02/22/2020 1:45 p.m.

SEDONA, Ariz. – As the city of Sedona’s Uptown Roadway Improvements Project gets closer to completion, please be advised of the following possible reroutes, one-lane flagging operations and nighttime road closures during the week of Feb. 23, 2020.

Asphalt paving operations to begin along State Route (SR) 89A

Starting Wednesday night, crews will begin asphalt paving operations along SR 89A, from the new Schnebly Road Roundabout to the crosswalk in between Art Barn Road and Arroyo Roble Road, and Apple Avenue, from SR 89A to Mountain View Drive. Crews will continue to pave southernly along sections of SR 89A, including the Jordan Road Roundabout and the Schnebly Road connector, throughout the remainder of the week. To minimize the impact, this portion of the work will be performed at night. This work is highly weather dependent and may be altered or suspended if temperatures are not met.

Please be aware of the following impacts:

  • On Wednesday, Feb. 26, through Friday, Feb. 28, 7 p.m. – 5 a.m., sections of SR 89A, from the new Schnebly Road Roundabout to Forest Road, and Apple Avenue, from SR 89A to Mountain View Drive, will be closed as asphalt paving operations occur.
  • Flaggers will be on site to maintain one lane of traffic during paving operations, and if necessary, reroute motorists through the Uptown district. 

Storm drain removal to take place

In preparation of asphalt paving operations, crews will be removing and replacing a deteriorated storm drain and asphalt pavement along Jordan Road, between the Jordan Road Roundabout and Cedic Plaza Crosswalk.

Please be aware of the following impacts:

  • From Monday, Feb. 24, to Friday, Feb. 28, Jordan Road will be closed to through traffic between the newly constructed roundabout and the Cedic Plaza Crosswalk while work is underway. Please follow the marked detour signage to get to your destination.
  • Pedestrian and business access directly next to the construction will not be affected by this work. 

Median installation ongoing

Crews will continue installing the new median along SR 89A, from Forest Road to just north of Art Barn Road, throughout the week. 

Please be aware of the following impacts:

  • On Monday, Feb. 24, through Friday, Feb. 28, 6:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., one lane of traffic in both directions will be maintained while work is underway.
