Construction along Middle Verde Road is among the many highway construction projects underway around Camp Verde. According to Jack Brewer of Brewer Brothers Construction, "We’re putting in a turn lane for the new RV park (Distant Drums), adding eight feet to the north side of the roadway, five feet to the south side, and expanding the cattle crossing [in this photo]." He said they had hoped to be finished by Aug. 29 but because of rain, it will probably be after Labor Day. The work site that is located on both town and Arizona Department of Transportation’s rights of way is located near Interstate 17.
