Graham County and the Arizona Department of Transportation are constructing a roundabout at the intersection of 8th Avenue, Airport Road and Safford Bryce Road north of Safford.
The roundabout will replace the existing Y-intersection at that location.
Work started in late October 2019 and is scheduled to extend through May of 2020.
Motorists should expect the following traffic impacts:
Intermittent lane closures with flaggers throughout the project
A temporary bypass will be built during construction of the roundabout itself
An Airport Road detour will be created later in the project to construct the permanent connection between the roundabout and Airport Road
Access to businesses and residences will be maintained during the project.
Vehicles should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
