Delays on Hwy. 72 near Bouse after canal breach

State Route 72 remains open in Bouse following canal breach
Minor delays may be experienced as crews continue to clean up roadway

Cleanup efforts are continuing on State Route 72 following a breach in a Central Arizona Project (CAP) canal near Bouse early Sunday morning, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. While the highway remains open, minor intermittent traffic restrictions may cause slight delays as maintenance crews continue to sweep dirt and rocks off the roadway.

ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center at or call 5-1-1.
