The Arizona Department of Transportation says drivers traveling a 24-mile stretch of State Route 88 east of Apache Junction should expect delays the next two months while workers repair damage from flooding.

The department says the work between Apache Junction and Canyon Lake will take place between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and that no work is scheduled over the Labor Day weekend.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane in half-mile increments and a pilot vehicle will guide drivers through the work zones.

State Route 88 is also known as the Apache Trail.
