GILA COUNTY – Motorists on U.S. Highway 60 between Miami and Superior will encounter lane restrictions and delays Wednesday, April 7, through Friday, April 9, for the Pinto Creek Bridge replacement project. Restrictions planned for Tuesday, April 6, have been canceled.
Flaggers and restrictions are scheduled from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. They will extend from 7 a.m. to noon on Friday.
The restrictions are necessary while crews haul girders for the new bridge to the worksite and place them to form the bridge.
While delays will generally be limited to 15 minutes, longer delays are possible during peak travel times.
Motorists should proceed with caution, slow down, watch for equipment, and follow the directions of flaggers and law enforcement.
