A full overnight closure of U.S. Highway 60 between Miami and Superior is scheduled the night of Wednesday, July 21, for work on the new Pinto Creek Bridge.

The road will close to all traffic between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. to pour the remaining portion of the bridge deck. The road is scheduled to reopen at 4 a.m.; however, alternating lane closures with flaggers may be required after 4 a.m., if work extends beyond that hour.

In the event of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, the night of Wednesday, July 28, has been scheduled as a tentative backup date.

During the closure, all eastbound vehicles will be redirected at State Route 177 in Superior, and westbound vehicles will be redirected at the west end of Miami. Traffic will not be allowed to queue at the closure locations.

Motorists with a destination between SR 177 and Top-of-the-World west of Pinto Creek or between Miami and Pinto Valley Mine Road east of Pinto Creek will be allowed to pass, however no vehicles will be allowed between Top-of-the-World and Pinto Valley Mine Road.

Traffic will be detoured to SR 177 in Superior and SR 77 in Globe. The detour includes a 10% grade and will significantly increase travel time.

Motorists should proceed with caution, slow down, watch for equipment, and follow the directions of flaggers and law enforcement.

More information about the project is available at azdot.gov/PintoCreekBridge.

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