WILLCOX — Work on the Haskell Avenue Bridge over Interstate 10, east of Willcox, will begin next week, creating delays in travel between the Gila Valley and Tucson.
The bridge will close to all traffic starting Monday, April 5. Also closed will be the ramp from Taylor Road and Haskell Avenue to eastbound I-10. The closures will remain in effect until the fall.
Starting later in the month, eastbound I-10 will close to traffic on the weekends while the old bridge is dismantled and a new bridge is installed. Crews are currently constructing temporary lanes for weekend traffic.
Drivers should proceed with caution and follow all speed limits through the construction zones.
