Drivers headed eastbound on State Route 260 near Camp Verde will have to slow down over the next three months.
Arizona Department of Transportation crews are paving a two-mile stretch of the roadway, about 17 miles east of Camp Verde. The work also includes installing concrete to improve drainage.
The speed limit has been reduced to 25 mph in the work zone and travel is restricted to a single lane.
Delays are expected to be minimal.
Crews are working from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
