Hidden west of Hwy. 179 by trees, bushes and rolling hills, construction crews have been working on the future southbound lane unnoticed by motorists. The section that crews are concentrating most on at this time will eventually take drivers from Sedona to the Village of Oak Creek as part of a bifurcated roadway.


On Nov. 2, Design Group Architects submitted revisions to their letter of intent that will increase the amount of open spaced preserved by more than four acres, while reducing the number of timeshares and adding additional workforce housing.


With construction on the Hwy. 179 Improvement Project in full swing, traffic is moving slowly along the corridor, particularly in the Village of Oak Creek where four-way stops have replaced the stoplights at the intersections of Bell Rock Boulevard and Jacks Canyon Road.


Although traffic slows to a crawl at Back o? Beyond Road?s intersection with Hwy. 179 — where the cement barriers are in place — Southwest Asphalt Paving construction workers contracted for the project are managing to keep things moving — for the most part.
