Preliminary work is underway for the State Route 77 Gila River Bridge replacement project in Winkelman.
Over the next two weeks, crews will survey the work zone, install signs and complete other preparatory work.
No traffic impacts are expected at this time.
In late September, crews will install a temporary traffic signal. Once the signal is installed, traffic across the bridge will be restricted to a single lane. Drivers may only proceed across the bridge when the signal indicator shows green.
Motorists should expect occasional delays, especially during peak traffic hours and during scheduled closures of US 60 west of Miami for the Pinto Creek Bridge replacement project.
The temporary signal will allow crews to rebuild the bridge in sections.
In addition to the new bridge, the project includes new guard rails and pavement markings.
Work is expected to continue into the summer of 2021.
Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
