PHOENIX – A bridge over Interstate 10 west of Willcox will close Monday, April 5, as part of an Arizona Department of Transportation project to replace the bridge deck.
The bridge at Exit 336, which connects Haskell Avenue to the south of I-10 and Taylor Road to the north of the Interstate, will remain closed until fall.
The eastbound I-10 exit ramp to Haskell Avenue will remain open to allow vehicles to enter Willcox from the west.
While the westbound I-10 entrance and exit ramps to and from Taylor road will remain open, traffic will not be able to cross over I-10. Also, the ramp from Taylor Road and Haskell Avenue to eastbound I-10 will remain closed during construction.
The Arizona Department of Transportation warns motorists to expect periodic weekend detours on I-10 from 8 p.m. Fridays to 6 a.m. Mondays. During those times, traffic will be diverted onto the exit ramps and back to I-10 using the entrance ramps.
The project also includes barrier replacement, new pavement adjacent to the bridge, guardrail upgrades and new signs.
