U.S. Route 60 Queen Creek Tunnel Rockfall

The Arizona Department of Transportation started another improvement project on US 60 in the Superior area on Monday, Sept. 28 2015. The project involved removal of loose rock from the embankments around the entrances to the Queen Creek tunnel.

Two other construction projects are currently going on in the Superior area, including the passing lane project at Oak Flat and the Silver King / Superior Streets widening project. There are currently weekly delays for blasting for the passing lane project, but no major delays for Silver King / Superior Streets project.

Blasting schedules for the Oak Flat passing lane project may be found at

Motorists seeking an alternate route can consider state routes 77 and 177, which is approximately 68 miles long. Motorists headed to the White Mountains region, including Show Low and Springerville, can also take SR 87 through Payson and travel east on SR 260 as an alternative.

ADOT is working to minimize the traffic impacts as much as possible, including scheduling some nighttime work.

Drivers are asked to use caution, watch for construction equipment and personnel, and allow extra time for your commute.
