facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

The Arizona Department of Transportation begins a project on Thursday, Nov. 7, to reconstruct the Dripping Springs Wash Bridge, which is located 13 miles north of Winkelman.

Work will be conducted on half of the bridge at a time and then shift to the other lane for completion. In order to safely conduct the work, a traffic signal will be used to regulate traffic across the bridge in alternating directions. Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Motorists will experience short delays as the signal transitions through its cycle. There will be narrowed traffic lanes, a reduced speed limit and wide load restrictions through the work zone. ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

The $2 million project is scheduled for completion in July 2014.

For more information about this project, please call the ADOT Project Hotline at 1.855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov.
