Intermittent lane restrictions on US60 near Pinto Creek Bridge begin Feb. 24

Posted

Motorists on U.S. Highway 60 between Miami and Superior will encounter intermittent lane restrictions and delays starting Wednesday, Feb. 24, for the Pinto Creek Bridge replacement project.

The restrictions are necessary while crews haul girders for the new bridge into the work site and place them to form the bridge. Girder work is scheduled for daylight hours Mondays-Fridays and is scheduled to continue into May, according to a release.

Motorists should follow the direction of flaggers and law enforcement. While delays will generally be limited to 15 minutes, longer delays are possible during peak travel times.

Because the restrictions will be intermittent (traffic will not be affected every day), motorists can check the upcoming schedule on the project website, azdot.gov/PintoCreekBridge, or on AZ 511.

Drivers should proceed with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.

For more information, call the ADOT Bilingual Project Information Line at 855-712-8530 or go to azdot.gov/contact and select Projects from the drop-down menu. For real-time highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT’s Traveler Information Site at az511.gov, follow ADOT on Twitter @ArizonaDOT or call 511, except while driving.
