Traffic Alerts - Two Guns & Meteor Crater Bridge

I-40 lane restrictions planned at Meteor Crater interchange between Flagstaff and Winslow Jan. 25 - 29

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for the following restrictions on Interstate 40 at the Meteor Crater Road traffic interchange - about 30 miles east of Flagstaff - as work continues on the Meteor Crater Bridge rehabilitation project:

  • East- and westbound I-40 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction from 6 a.m. Monday, Jan. 25 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28.
  • East- and westbound I-40 will be closed at Meteor Crater Road from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29.
    • Detour: Drivers will use the on- and off-ramps at the I-40/Meteor Crater Road interchange to exit and re-enter the highway.
  • Meteor Crater Road will be closed between the east- and westbound I-40 on- and off-ramps from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29.
    • Detour from westbound I-40 to southbound Meteor Crater Road: Exit at Two Guns Road (milepost 230) and then re-enter the highway eastbound and exit at Meteor Crater Road. 
    • Detour from northbound Meteor Crater Road to westbound I-40: Drive eastbound on I-40 and exit at Meteor City Road. Re-enter the highway to proceed westbound on I-40.

Speed will be reduced to 45 mph and a 16-foot vehicle width restriction will be in place; however, wider loads can be accommodated with at least 12 hours prior notice.

ADOT advises drivers to slow down and use caution around construction personnel and equipment while work is underway.
