This $2.9 million project consists of reconstructing the existing bridge approaches of eight structures on the eastbound and westbound roadways. Work also includes milling and replacing the existing pavement at the bridge approaches, guardrail reconstruction and the replacement of existing pavement markings.
Work will begin on April 29 at 6 a.m. in two locations and will be in place for the next three months. Drivers can expect the eastbound lanes, at both locations, to be closed and traffic switched over to one of the westbound lanes, creating a two-way roadway. Work hours are 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The first will be at the Tonto Creek Bridge (mileposts 267-268) near Kohl's Ranch Road, and the second will start at the Christopher Creek Campground (mileposts 272 -277) and work eastbound for five miles.
Delays are possible and drivers need to allow extra travel time to reach their destinations. The closures and detour will be in effect for the next three months.
The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage. ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, to comply with the reduced speed limit and to be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
