On August 12. and 15. 2011 we reported on expected road construction at the Cordes Junction Interchange, about 2.5 miles from Arcosanti. This is exit 262 from Highway 17.
Construction has indeed begun.
The first two photos were taken on Friday, September 2. 2011. In this view, we are approaching the junction, traveling on Highway 69 from the direction of Prescott, AZ.
We can just see the red roof of the old Papa’s Place Restaurant on our right.
Photos three and four were taken on Friday, September 16. 2011. Same view, a little closer. Note the ADOT sign on our left.
Here we are a little closer to the sign and this construction is taking place between Papa’s Place and the Highway.
We will continue this report with construction progress every few weeks.
