What to expect

Throughout construction, there were travel restrictions through the area. This included some overnight closures of I-40 when traffic was detoured to the A-1 Mountain Road on- and off ramps. 

In addition, a 40-day temporary full closure of the A-1 Mountain Road Bridge was implemented to accelerate demolition of the existing bridge and construction of the new bridge.

During the full closure of the A-1 Mountain Road Bridge, eastbound I-40 drivers wanting to exit A-1 Mountain Road were detoured to Exit 191 to turn around and travel west to access A-1 Mountain Road. Drivers on A-1 Mountain Road who want to travel eastbound on I-40 first traveled westbound on I-40 and exited Hughes Avenue (Exit 185-Bellemont) to turn around and travel eastbound.
