Arizona Department of Transportation is warning drivers that State Route 264 will be reduced to one lane of travel during construction.
Drivers near Tuba City need to prepare as the Arizona Department of Transportation begins a project to rehabilitate the Moenkopi Wash Bridge along State Route 264.
The bridge, located two miles east of the junction with US 160 in Tuba City, will receive a new bridge deck as well as new approaches creating a smooth transition on and off the bridge. Work will begin on Monday, April 18.
SR 264 will be reduced to one lane of alternating east- and westbound travel through the construction zone. Temporary traffic signals and concrete barriers will be used to control traffic through the work zone. Traffic will be shifted as the bridge deck is completed one half at a time.
Other work includes minor repairs to the bridge abutments, replacing guardrails and erosion prevention measures.
The $3.7 million project is expected to be completed by this fall.
