Progress continues toward better bridges connecting I-40, Route 66 in Seligman


By Ryan Harding / ADOT Communications

The West Seligman Bridges project continues advancing with completion of new bridge decks on the Historic Route 66 and Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad overpasses providing one of two connections between Seligman and I-40. This week, crews will begin working on the final bridge along this connection between I-40 and Seligman's west side, where the route passes over Business 40.

Seligman bridge 2Work began last June and is scheduled to finish this spring in time for the summer travel season. The three bridges, all of which are 40 to 50 years old, needed new decks and other repairs to extend their lifespans and keep traffic flowing in and out of west Seligman for decades to come.

While Exit 121 to Seligman on I-40 is closed for these improvements, Route 66 aficionados have convenient access to and from Seligman via I-40 Exit 123. Signs on I-40 direct travelers to this exit, which connects to the east side of Seligman. The map below shows this route.
