Work will include asphalt resurfacing, concrete sidewalk, sidewalk ramps, guardrail adjustments, and pavement markings on M-26 from US-41 in Phoenix north to Copper Harbor and on US-41 from Copper Harbor east to the end of US-41. This project includes a three-year materials and workmanship pavement warranty.
A map of the project area is available on Mi Drive.
