The closure of U.S. Highway 60 between Superior and Miami will continue until further notice due to delays in the demolition process of the old Pinto Creek Bridge.
All eastbound vehicles are being redirected at State Route 177 in Superior, and all westbound vehicles are being redirected at the west end of Miami. Motorists may use SR 177 and SR 77 as an alternate route until the highway reopens. The detour includes a 10% grade and will significantly increase travel time.
An additional update will be provided when more information is available.
As a reminder, motorists with a destination between SR 177 and Top-of-the-World west of Pinto Creek or between Miami and Pinto Valley Mine Road east of Pinto Creek are allowed to pass, however, no vehicles are allowed between Top-of-the-World and Pinto Valley Mine Road.
Motorists should proceed with caution, slow down, watch for equipment, and follow the directions of flaggers and law enforcement.
