Expect long delays on highway west of Phoenix for next 3 weeks
PHOENIX — Drivers should expect significant delays on a highway west of the Valley over the next three weeks, authorities said.
U.S. 60 between the towns of Wenden and Aguila will be restricted to one lane for all traffic as flaggers and a pilot car will direct drivers through the stretch of road.
The 20-mile portion will be reduced beginning Tuesday at 3 a.m. and continue from 3 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday as construction workers make pavement and bridge improvements.
RESTRICTIONS: US 60 will be reduced to one lane between Wenden and Aguila starting Tuesday. Crews are scheduled to repave the roadway from milepost 62 to milepost 82. Motorists should plan for delays up to 30 minutes long.

The lane reductions will occur between Wenden Hillside Drive and North 531st Avenue or mileposts 62 and 82.
The stretch of road is located roughly 60 miles west of Phoenix and 25 miles west of Wickenburg and could be used as an alternate route to or from southern California.
Delays on the route could take as long as 30 minutes while construction is taking place.
Vehicles 12 feet or more in width will not be permitted through the road while the restrictions are in place.
