May 03, 2018

US160 Chinle Wash BridgePHOENIX – A $6 million Arizona Department of Transportation project starting Monday, May 7, is creating a new US 160 bridge at Chinle Wash in far northeastern Arizona.

Those using US 160 through the area should expect delays up to 20 minutes with this work underway at milepost 429, just west of Mexican Water on the Navajo Nation. A temporary traffic signal will have traffic alternating through one lane on the existing bridge.

The new three-span bridge will be 280 feet long and nearly 9 feet wider than the current bridge. The project, which scheduled to finish by year’s end, also will realign the roadway and install new pavement markings, among other improvements.
