Work resumes next week, with four-hour closures planned on two days
PHOENIX – All planned restrictions for the US 60 Pinto Creek Bridge replacement project, including a four-hour full closure scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 14, have been canceled for the remainder of this week, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Next week, crews will resume blasting operations and rock removal on US 60 between Superior and Miami. The following restrictions and closures are scheduled for the week of Nov. 18:
- Monday, Nov. 18: Lane restrictions between 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, Nov. 19: Full closure between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Lane restrictions, if needed, between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, Nov. 20: Lane restrictions between 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Thursday, Nov. 21: Full closure between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Lane restrictions, if needed, between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Friday, Nov. 22: Lane restrictions between 6:30 a.m. and noon.
When US 60 lane restrictions are in place, flaggers will direct traffic and drivers should plan extra travel time.
During closures, motorists will use a detour on state routes 77 and 177 through Winkelman. That roughly 68-mile route includes a 10 percent grade and will significantly increase travel time. Drivers may want to plan trips before or after the full closures because of the potential for long delays.
Eastbound US 60 traffic will be redirected at State Route 177 in Superior, and westbound traffic will be redirected at the west end of Miami. Traffic will not be allowed to queue at the closure locations.
Drivers should proceed with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
