Meath Wash bridge replacement project on State Route 89 set to begin Jan. 28
A 10-month project to replace the bridge over Meath Wash in Yavapai County is set to begin next week. The Meath Wash bridge is located on SR 89 south of Ashfork near milepost 358.
Preliminary work on the $2.9 million project will begin Monday, Jan. 28. The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for the following work-related impacts:
- The north-and southbound shoulders of SR 89 will be closed.
- The speed limit in the work zone will be reduced from 65 mph to 45 mph.
The bridge will close in early March and remain closed for about six months. A temporary detour around the existing bridge will be constructed to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction at all times while bridge-replacement work is underway.
ADOT crews will remove and replace the existing bridge with a new cast-in-place two-span bridge and improve sight distance from the travel lanes at this location.
Drivers are asked to obey traffic control devices and use caution around construction personnel equipment.
