Project overview

The Arizona Department of Transportation has initiated a project located in Coconino County on Interstate-40, at milepost 230 and at milepost 234, between the city of Flagstaff and the city of Winslow.

About the Project

The two bridge decks being replaced in this project were built in 1971. The structures are showing signs of wear with minor spalling, cracking, etc. Various components of the structures are outdated and will be rebuilt under the current specifications.

The work consists of rehabilitating the Two Guns and Meteor Crater bridges. This includes removing the existing bridge deck, barriers, approach slabs, approach guardrails, bearing assemblies and constructing a new bridge deck with barriers and new approach slabs, installing new compression seal joints, spot painting of the steel girders, replacement of the abutment bearings, concrete repairs (Two Guns bridge only) of the abutment cap, partial replacement of the abutment backwalls, roadway embankment modifications and installing new approach guardrail to meet federal standards.

This work will be accomplished by rehabilitating the Two Guns bridge first, followed by Meteor Crater bridge this winter.
