Work to Install New Traffic Signal on Diversion Dam Road Starts June 12

Work being performed by ADOT to install new traffic signal on Highway 79, at the intersection of Diversion Dam Road, starts June 12. The project is expected to last approximately 4 months. Please use caution and reduce speeds when approaching the intersection.


Initial work requires the closure of the right-turn lane onto Diversion Dam Road from north-bound Highway 79. This closure is projected to last one week, but could be extended depending on conditions encountered.


Once work is completed, motorist will enjoy the benefits of a newly constructed traffic signal, including quicker travel times during peak traffic hours and increased safety.  The project also includes the installation of pre-emption sensors to allow emergency responders to travel quickly and safely through this intersection.


For more information, please contact the Town of Florence Public Works Department at (520) 868- 7620.
