Work is scheduled to start on November 8th in Salt River Canyon, U.S. 60
The Arizona glass guardrail Department of Transportation plans to begin work on November 8 to implement a safety project within the right of way of ADOT. Tegrives National Forest and shows low (between milestones 301-340).
The US 60 Salt River Canyon Show Low Roadway Departure Safety Project will involve the removal of vegetation that is dangerous to drivers on the US 60, including trees, shrubs, logs, and upturned stumps. Vegetation will be cleared on both sides of the road 30 feet from the edge of the carriageway and 5 feet from the back of the guardrail (where the guardrail is present).
60% of road fatalities in Arizona are caused by vehicles leaving the road. These collisions are called road departure collisions.
When a vehicle leaves the road, it has the risk of hitting stationary objects such as trees. In fact, trees are the most frequently hit objects in serious crashes. In Arizona, most road departure accidents occur on two-lane country roads.
In the United States, 60 miles west of Show Low, there have been 11 fatal accidents and 34 serious injuries in the past 10 years close to the project limit. Many of these accidents involved leaving the road.
The highway safety improvement project grant funds will cover nearly 95% of the total cost of the $1.5 million project.
