A bridge rehabilitation project will be starting Monday, Sept. 22, at the east Navajo Blvd. interchange on Interstate 40 in Holbrook.

The majority of this project will require crews to work underneath the bridge and there will be very little impact to traffic traveling on I-40.

There is one phase of the work which will require a lane closure on the westbound side of the bridge where crews will be working on the deck. During that time there will be lane closures and speed reductions for westbound traffic only. There will also be one day when work will necessitate the closure of the eastbound on and off ramps at the interchange. A message board will be used to give advance notice to motorists when that time is planned.

Work hours will be from sunrise to sunset Monday through Friday. The project is scheduled to be completed by late this year.

ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
