Blasting closure scheduled on US 60 between Superior and Miami for mid-August

The first closure for blasting on the Oak Flat passing lane project on US 60 (milepost 231-233) between Superior and Miami has been scheduled between Aug. 12 and Aug. 20. The exact date will be decided late next week when drilling crews have been able to finalize their progress.

Blasting will be done during a weekday and will start at 9 a.m. Motorists traveling on US 60 between Superior and Miami should plan on the highway being closed for up to 90 minutes. There will be a seven-day notice prior to the exact blasting date and that information will be distributed to the media, digital message boards around Superior and Globe/Miami, project web page updates, ADOT social media sites and contact emails.
