Pavement Preservation Projects to Begin September 24 in Arizona City, Eloy Areas
FLORENCE – Pinal County Public Works crews will be placing an Asphalt Dust Rock Palliative (ADRP) layer on four stretches of road in the Arizona City and Eloy areas. ADRP is similar to a chip seal and it is used to smooth and renew the road surface while cutting down on dust. Work will begin September 24.
These pavement preservation projects will use a combined total of 186,550 square yards of material to resurface approximately 22.7 lane miles of improved road. The project will use almost 2800 tons of chip and 357 tons of oil. The ADRP will lengthen the life of the road while also helping improve air quality by minimizing dust.
The roads to be affected by the pavement preservation project include:
- Hanna Road from Curry Road to La Palma
- Battaglia Drive from La Palma Road to State Route 87
- Sunland Gin Road from Greene Reservoir Road to Harmon Road
- Harmon Road from Sunshine Boulevard to Picacho Highway
The timing of this project may be changed due to inclement weather. Certain conditions need to be present for optimal results. Please be alert to possible traffic delays. Drivers are urged to obey the speed limit and all posted signs and barricades while traveling through these construction zones.
Employees in the Pinal County Public Works Department appreciate your patience and understanding as they work to improve your drive throughout the county.
