Travelers heading on State Route 89A between Sedona and Flagstaff should allow for extra time for travel as one-lane restrictions will be in effect beginning Tuesday (July 19, 2016) at milepost 394, just north of the Vista Point Overlook to accommodate construction on SR 89A between the Vista Point Overlook and JW Powell Boulevard intersection.
The one-lane restriction will be in effect weekdays between 7 am and 4 pm until early October as crews clear trees and perform other work as part of the roadway improvement project. Flaggers will be in place to control travel through the area and a pilot car may be in use to allow for alternating north- and southbound travel through the work zone.
ADOT advises travelers to allow for extra time for travel in the area, and to watch for crews and equipment in the work zone. For more information on the project, please visit the project website.
Fossil Creek Road west of Strawberry, beginning 1/2 mile west of the entrance to the Upper Fossil Springs Trailhead (34.404593, -111.567246) and extending west and down canyon to immediately east of the Waterfall Trailhead (34.40501 -111.61398) will remain closed until further notice for public safety due to the treacherous and unsafe road conditions resulting from geologic instability on rock walls resulting in frequent rock falls and slides into the road.
If you would like to hike the Fossil Springs Trail, take the road from Strawberry.
If you wish to access the creek and waterfall, you can access the area from Hwy 260 just east of Camp Verde.
FR 776 is closed at Sunset Crater Volcano-Wupatki Scenic Loop Drive (FR 545). The access to the Cinder Hills OHV Area is the junction of FR 776 at Highway 89. The OHV area can no longer be accessed from FR 545. Visitors to the Sunset Crater Volcano and Wupatki National Monuments can access these sites from one of the two junctions of FR 545 and Highway 89.
The change to this access will reduce congestion on FR 545 without impacting recreation opportunities.
