PRESCOTT — Motorists using the Carefree Highway are about to see better days.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is set to begin a major widening project on the roadway between U.S. 60 and Interstate 17.

ADOT says the construction begins Tuesday on passing lanes on a two-mile segment of the highway 14 miles east of U.S. 60 otherwise known as Grand Avenue junction.

ADOT completed the first passing lane project on the Carefree Highway near Lake Pleasant earlier this year.

Work hours will be 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The project is scheduled for completion in May 2011.
