Traffic Alerts - Interstate 40 Hermosa Drive Bridge Rehabilitation

Expect lane restrictions on I-40 at Hermosa Drive Bridge in Holbrook June 27 through July 1

Drivers should expect delays

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for alternating single-lane restrictions on Interstate 40 at the Hermosa Drive Bridge in Holbrook (near milepost 288) from Monday, June 27, through Friday, July 1.

  • East- and westbound I-40 will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • The speed limit will be reduced in the work zone.
  • Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

Additional restrictions will be announced in the coming weeks as construction continues on the bridge rehabilitation project.

The Hermosa Drive Bridge is receiving a new bridge deck, guardrails and barriers. The roadway approaches to the bridge will be improved as well. The project is expected to be completed by this fall.

This bridge project continues ADOT’s commitment to invest in the I-40 corridor as a vital highway for commerce. From 2016 to 2020, ADOT invested more than $275 million on the roadway.
