State Route 260 Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Bridgework on Eastbound SR 260 East of Payson Nears Completion

At the end of this month, the eastbound lanes of SR 260 between Christopher Creek and the Tonto Creek Bridge (mileposts 267 to 277) will be fully open through the current work zone, and the 10 miles of traffic control will be lifted.

The project will shut down for the winter months, and work will resume next spring to repair three bridges on the westbound lanes.

For the past five months, SR 260 approximately 17 miles east of Payson has been under construction due to a bridge rehabilitation project on the eastbound lanes. The work required two-way traffic on the westbound lanes as five bridge approaches and departures were being repaired.

This $2.9 million project consists of reconstructing the existing bridge approaches of eight structures on the eastbound and westbound roadways. Work also includes milling and replacing the existing pavement at the bridge approaches, guardrail reconstruction and the replacement of existing pavement markings.
