Headstones offered at Hi Jolly Cemetery Hi Jolly Cemetery’s Offer Colorado River Stone and Granite has come to an agreement with the Town of Quartzsite to offer to those whose relative’s graves have no headstones or identification, to purchase a marker through the Town of Quartzsite at a budget rate $140.00 ($90.00 plus the cost of setting the stone in cement for $50.00) for a 8”x12”x3” gray granite marker. Markers or headstones serve an important purpose. In the years to come, markers are the most basic proof for genealogist and recorders. Dinice Ross, Cemetery Records Call Town Hall @ 928-927-4333 ADOT is replacing the existing inter- section with a roundabout to improve the flow of traffic through the area. The project also involves removing and replacing existing pavement as well as new lighting, traffic controls and upgrades to the drainage system. Message boards will be displayed to inform commuters of construction up- dates and restrictions. As always, drivers are reminded 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 unsched- uled closures or restrictions may oc- cur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Infor- mation Center at or call 5-1-1.
