US 60: Pinto Creek Bridge Replacement Project

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will replace the Pinto Creek Bridge, located on US 60 about six miles west of Miami, Arizona, starting in 2019.

The project involves constructing a new bridge adjacent to the existing bridge, and then removing the existing bridge.

The entire project is expected to take approximately two years.

While the existing bridge will remain in service until the new bridge is completed, occasional restrictions and closures of US 60 will be required. ADOT will provide advance notice of restrictions and closures though message boards, news releases and email alerts.

The Pinto Creek Bridge was built to standards in 1949; however, those standards no longer meet the current minimum FHWA, American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and ADOT Bridge Design Guidelines.  The purpose of this project is to address a structurally-deficient and functionally obsolete bridge structure while ensuring that the travelling public is provided a reliable bridge crossing over Pinto Creek preserving the continuity of the US 60 and its function as a major transportation link.
