Interstate 17: Verde River Bridge Improvements

The Arizona Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration, is planning to improve the life of the I-17 Bridges over the Verde River by installing erosion-control measures and rehabilitating the structural integrity. The $1.8 million project, on Interstate17 between mileposts 287 and 289, is approximately one mile north of the junction with State Route 260 in Camp Verde.

As part of the project, new reinforced concrete aprons will be installed around each pier of both seven-span bridges to protect the structures from erosion.

What to Expect

Construction is anticipated to begin fall 2021 and be completed in the spring of 2022.  The project will occur within ADOT right-of-way and easements underneath the bridge. There are no anticipated restrictions for drivers on I-17. During construction, river users will be required to portage around the construction site.
