Sedona joined other municipalities in the Verde Valley to support a Camp Verde effort for widening State Route 260 between Camp Verde and Cottonwood.

Sedona City Council voted unanimously Tuesday, Jan. 8, to approve a resolution supporting the Town of Camp Verde in efforts to widen State Route 260. The resolution commits Sedona to assigning a planning professional who would work with a team from the Arizona Department of Transportation and other Verde Valley communities to develop a recommended design for the four-lane highway.While Sedona is not connected to the highway, the Sedona City Council voted unanimously to approve a resolution in support of the widening effort Tuesday, Jan. 8. That effort is designed to put pressure on the Arizona Department of Transportation to fund the project as part of its five-year budgeting plan for road improvements in the state. The proposal would turn the mostly two-lane roadway into a four-lane divided highway.

The resolution also commits the city to assign a city planner who would work with a team from ADOT and other Verde Valley communities to develop a recommended design for the four-lane roadway.
