Preliminary work for the US 60 Pinto Creek Bridge replacement project between Miami and Superior has been rescheduled to Monday, Sept. 9.

Lane restrictions will be in place 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. while crews remove guardrails, restripe the road near the bridge and place temporary concrete barriers.

Flaggers and pilot cars will be directing traffic. Drivers should plan for delays.

Full closures of US 60 are tentatively scheduled to begin in late September between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The overall project involves constructing a new bridge adjacent to the existing bridge, and then removing the existing bridge. The project is expected to take about two years.
