With the 4th of July weekend fast approaching be advised of delays on AZ 260 between Payson and Heber {just east of the Canyon Point CG at the top of the Mogollon Rim}. They appear to be adding an additional west bound lane which necessitates shutting 260 down to one lane and ushering traffic through using a Pilot Truck. The project does not look like it will be done anytime soon... perhaps a couple of months. [emoticon]

Traffic was heavy today at 11 AM with a lot folks getting an early jump on the weekend but this stretch sees heavy commercial traffic everyday. Depending on traffic, and the holiday weekend should be a nightmare to begin with, you can expect to be sitting for 10 to 30 minutes and it could get much worse fast. [emoticon]

Good luck.

That's great that they are adding a lane. Arizona usually does a great job of getting these road projects done.In Pennsylvania where we live, it would take years instead of months. 260 is such a nice drive. We stayed at Canyon Point campground 4 years ago. Very nice.

I think - but don't hold me to it - that the plan is to make it 4 lane from Star Valley to Heber.
BTW, Desert Cptn, we're sitting at the Payson Elks until Thursday. Then we have to go to the heat for a couple Dr appointments. Yuck.
