Pedestrian bridge installation will bring delays on SR 86 in Sells Thursday

Motorists traveling on State Route 86 in the town of Sells may experience brief delays Thursday while the Arizona Department of Transportation installs a foot bridge as part of a pedestrian safety project that is under construction.

The two-lane highway will be reduced to a single lane between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday (Jan. 28) to allow room for a crane to set the bridge, which will span a concrete drainage ditch near Indian Oasis Intermediate School.

Flagging personnel will direct traffic in both directions through the open travel lane during this work. The posted speed limit approaching the restriction will be reduced to 25 mph.

The project includes installation of a signalized crosswalk that allows pedestrians to active traffic lights that stop oncoming vehicles and allow safe crossing of the highway, as well as sidewalks leading to the crosswalk.

ADOT advises drivers 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 unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center or call 511.

For more information about this project, please call C.T. Revere, ADOT Senior Community Relations Officer, at 1.520.705.3574 or email at
