Motorists should plan for extra travel time on US 160 during bridge replacement project
Starting Monday, May 7, US 160 will be narrowed to one lane in the work zone to enable crews to remove the existing Chinle Wash Bridge and replace it with a new $6 million bridge. The Chinle Wash Bridge is located near milepost 429, just west of Mexican Water on the Navajo Nation.
Traffic impacts include:
The bridge is scheduled to be reduced to one lane of traffic beginning Monday, May 7, and continuing through late 2018.
A temporary traffic signal will allow for alternating motor-vehicle travel in both directions through the construction zone.
In addition to the new bridge, the project includes realigning the roadway, installing new pavement markings and other related work.
The project is scheduled to be completed by year’s end.
Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For more information, please call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov.
