Lane restrictions are scheduled to begin Monday, Sept. 23, on State Route 77 in Winkelman as crews install temporary signals for the Gila River Bridge replacement project.

Once the new signals are in place, traffic across the bridge will be restricted to a single lane. The width limit on the bridge during construction will be 15 feet.

Motorists should expect occasional delays, especially during peak traffic hours and during scheduled closures of US 60 west of Miami for the Pinto Creek Bridge replacement project. 

In addition to the lane restrictions on SR 77, Quarelli Street will be closed to traffic within the work zone.  

The temporary signals will allow crews to rebuild the bridge one lane at a time. 

Work is expected to continue into summer 2021.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
