COTTONWOOD -- Meeting in Cottonwood at 9 a.m. Monday, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will hear a presentation of the intergovernmental agreement that the Arizona Department of Transportation(ADOT) wants signed by the seven Verde Valley governments on State Route 260 being widened to four lanes.

The agreement is intended to stipulate consensus on the restrictions of the roadway before ADOT considers a contract to upgrade the road. The state does not want to endure the same conflict that preceding the proposed upgrade 10 years ago.

A key stipulation is that there will be only seven access points onto the widened highway from Thousand Trails to Interstate 17. Because the partners in Camp Verde could not agree on that point last time, ADOT only upgraded the section west of Verde Village where there was agreement. This time around it has been the Town of Camp Verde that has been leading the charge.

ADOT wants the consensus agreement before the end of the year.

The state has committed $66 million for the upgrade, which could be withdrawn without the agreement among the five cities and towns, the Yavapai-Apache Nation and Yavapai County.

The meeting will be held in the Yavapai County Verde Valley Complex Hearing Room, at 10 S. Sixth St., Cottonwood.
