Crash on 89A stops southbound traffic entering Cottonwood

A major accident just past Rocking Chair Ranch Road at State Route 89A halted southbound traffic entering Cottonwood for several hours Wednesday afternoon. Drivers were diverted to the Mingus Avenue Extention,...

While the State Route 89A roadway lights were expected to go into operation at the end of September, the lights are now expected to shine the week of Monday, Oct. 8.

The Arizona Department of Transportation’s $4.3 million State Route 89A improvement project includes continuous roadway lighting between Dry Creek Road and Airport Road, a traffic signal at Andante Drive and repaving of a portion of State Route 89A. Following weather and other delays, work on the project was expected to be completed by the end of September, according to ADOT reports.Assistant Public Works Director Andy Dickey said city staff has been in constant contact with the Arizona Department of Transportation and its contractors on the state project. Issues with wiring were cited as some of the reasons for the delay. Completion on the lighting project was also expected Thursday, Oct. 4.

“There are a few poles that still need to be adjusted and installed. It appears some intersection lights, some of those poles, need to be swapped out,” Dickey said.

He said the city should be notified prior to switching the lights on, but a firm date has not been set as of yet.
