Most notable calls were a residential fire where a patient was successfully rescued and the fire was contained to the room of origin . In addition 10 motor vehicle accidents; six of the accidents were rollovers. These were due to a storm cell that sat above I-17.  All patients received treatment and/ or transport to the nearest available medical facility. Copper Canyon Fire did not do this alone they receive support from Verde Valley Fire, Sedona Fire, ADOT and the Department of Public Safety.

ADOT Update:  Restrictions begin today (10/31) on SR-260 to Accommodate Roundabout Construction near I-17
Travel restrictions and lane closures will begin Monday, Oct. 31, for both east- and westbound travel on State Route 260 as construction begins on the SR 260 roundabout at Industrial Drive in Camp Verde (milepost 218 to 219) just east of the Interstate 17 junction.
Lane and travel restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day and will be maintained until late February, 2017. A 10-foot-wide load restriction will also be in place during operations.
The completed roundabout will keep traffic flowing smoothly in all directions as well as in and out of businesses. At present, traffic on Industrial Drive can only make right turns onto SR 260, while those on SR 260 can wait in long left-turn bays to get to businesses or turn around.
For more information on this project, please call Coralie Cole, ADOT Senior Community Relations Officer, at 602.501.4899 or email at ccole@azdot.gov.

ADOT Update: Roundabout will Improve Safety, Traffic Flow in Camp Verde near I-17

 

A roundabout project on State Route 260 just east of Interstate 17 will enhance safety, and help visitors and residents better navigate a busy commercial area in Camp Verde. The roundabout will be where SR 260 intersects with Industrial Drive, in an area where many travelers pull over for gasoline, a bite to eat or a cup of coffee. 
The improvement will keep traffic flowing smoothly in all directions, as well as in and out of businesses. At present, traffic on Industrial Drive can only make right turns onto SR 260, while those on SR 260 can wait in long left-turn bays to get to businesses or turn around.  The Arizona Department of Transportation project, which will begin in the coming weeks and is set for completion in the spring, also will add sidewalks on the north side of SR 260 between Cliffs Parkway and Main Street, and on the south side of SR 260 between Seventh Street and Main Street.
While there will be traffic restrictions throughout the project, access to local businesses and properties will be maintained throughout.

 

Beaver Buggy Transport

Beaver Creek Transit, (the Beaver Buggy), celebrated its third anni­ver­sary on January 3, 2014. Three years of bringing free (dona­tions appreciated) transpor­tation to sen­iors and those of all ages with disa­bilities.  Thanks to all of the volun­teers and the LMPOA and BC Adult Center spon­sorship, the years have passed quickly. Now BCT is ready to move forward with phase 2, a link to the new Yavapai Apache Transit (YAT) which is linking to Cottonwood Area Transit (CAT). The new route created by the Nation connects much of the Verde Valley with a twice daily bus run. Fares are $1.25 or $3.00 for a one day pass.

Diana Bonnaha, YAT Director, hopes to start the service on April 14. When it is available, the BC Buggy will drop off and pick up riders in Camp Verde at the YAT bus stops. For these trips BCT will accept riders of all ages who are old enough not to require a car seat. The trips must be scheduled in advance by calling 592-2839 and ID is required for boarding. Passengers will be dropped at one of the Camp Verde stops in the 8:45 to 9:15 AM time slot and pick up in Camp Verde in the 3:30 to 3:50 PM time range. The YAT bus stops at Wal-Mart, Safeway, Cottonwood Library, and the VV Medical Center. Riders may transfer to CAT routes to go elsewhere.

Please extend your appreciation to Diana, Sonny Jackson, YAN Public Works Director, Robert Mills, YAN Grant Writer, and the Y-A Nation for sharing these opportunities with Beaver Creek residents. Also thank you to the BC Buggy’s current volunteer drivers who will get residents to the CV stops: Tony Testa, Nancy Rowland, Nancy Phillips, Ron Melcher, Margaret Holt, Dorcas Gerace, Rick Ayars, Janet Aniol. We could always use more drivers. Please call if you’re interested.
