Lane restrictions begin along US 89 north of Flagstaff

An 11-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 89 just north of Flagstaff will be under construction starting Wednesday, March 16, as crews work to remove trees that present a safety hazard.

In a press release Tuesday, The Arizona Department of Transportation says drivers should plan for intermittent lane restrictions along U.S. 89 north and southbound between Townsend-Winona Road and Sunset Crater Road.

The restrictions are expected to be in place weekdays from 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. through Thursday, March 31.

ADOT advises drivers to slow down and watch for construction crews and equipment while the restrictions are in place.
