I-40 Bridges (Painted Desert, Navajo, Chambers, Querino)

   

The Arizona Department of Transportation is reconstructing four bridges on I-40 east of Holbrook. The cost of this project is $2,999,998. The bridges are located at the Painted Desert Traffic Interchange milepost 311, the Navajo Traffic Interchange milepost 325, The Chambers Traffic Interchange milepost 333 and the Querino Traffic Interchange milepost 343. During the construction of each bridge, traffic will not be able to cross the interstate to access the opposite side. Traffic wishing to access the opposite side will need to use the next closest interchange on the east or west side of each bridge. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by late fall 2013, but certain bridges may be completed before that time.

ADOT will make every effort to minimize impacts on the traveling public during construction.

While ADOT strives to inform the public about planned roadway restrictions during any construction project, there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
