The Arizona Department of Transportation invites residents and commuters interested in learning more about the US 60 Pinto Creek bridge replacement project to an open house Thursday, Sept. 5, in Miami, Arizona.
The meeting is scheduled from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Bullion Plaza Cultural Center, 150 North Plaza Circle in Miami. There will be no formal presentation, but project team members will be available to share information about the project and answer questions.
The project involves constructing a new bridge adjacent to the existing bridge between Miami and Superior, and then removing the existing bridge. The entire project is tentatively set to begin in September 2019. It is expected to take about two years.
The existing bridge will remain in service until the new bridge is completed, but significant traffic impacts are expected at times during construction, including:
Intermittent lane closures with flaggers and pilot cars throughout the project
Pre-scheduled closures of US 60 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays early in the project
Pre-scheduled overnight closures of US 60 later in the project to set steel girders and place bridge-deck concrete
A five-day closure of US 60 when the new bridge is nearly complete
