Bridge replacement work starts on I-40 west of Holbrook Oct. 12
Drivers should expect narrowed lanes and reduced speed limits
The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin a project on Monday, Oct. 12 to replace the eastbound bridge at Tanner Wash on Interstate 40 (milepost 277-278), about seven miles east of Holbrook.
The $2.2 million project, which is scheduled for completion the first part of 2016, will include the construction of a new bridge, replacing the approach slabs and bridge barrier.
Work hours will be sunrise to sunset Monday through Thursday. There will be narrowed traffic lanes and the speed limit will be reduced through the work zones. While the eastbound bridge work is being done, traffic will be diverted to the westbound side of the freeway where two-way traffic will be maintained for approximately one half mile. Eastbound and westbound Interstate 40 access will be maintained at exit 277.
Flaggers will be present to guide vehicles through the work zones when necessary and drivers may experience brief delays at times.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zones with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
