State Route 80 Bridge Work To Begin, Between Douglas, Bisbee

Drivers on State Route 80 between Douglas and Bisbee be prepared for delays when a bridge replacement project at Glance Creek begins in August.

In addition to the new concrete bridge, the project also includes new guard rail and pavement markings.

The project is set to run into the summer of 2019.

Preliminary work is already underway, and motorists may see crews working off the roadway.

Once road work begins, traffic will be restricted to a single lane in alternating directions using a temporary traffic signal. Drivers should expect daily delays through the work zone when the signal is operational.
