SR 87 Teesto Wash Bridge Replacement

SR 87 Teesto Wash Bridge Replacement



This project has been paused due to winter weather and will resume in spring 2024



Project Cost: $7 million

The Arizona Department of Transportation is working on a bridge replacement project on the Teesto Wash Bridge over State Route 87. The bridge is located about 30 miles north of Winslow (MP 385). The new bridge is open to traffic. Work on the new bridge will be completed spring 2024.

The project limits extend approximately a quarter-mile north of the bridge and about a half-mile south of the bridge along SR 87.

Project Elements

The purpose of this project is to replace the existing bridge. The work includes:

  • Replacing the existing bridge with a new two-span bridge.
  • Realigning the roadway as it approaches the bridge.
  • Replacing guardrails and adding new pavement markings and other miscellaneous work.

What to Expect During Construction

The existing bridge will be reduced to only lane only with alternating north- and southbound travel during construction. This will enable drivers to continue to access the area while half of the bridge is demolished. Traffic will be directed through the work zone by a temporary traffic signal. Drivers should plan for extra travel time and watch for construction workers and equipment while traveling through the area.

The new bridge has been constructed next to the existing bridge. Traffic has been shifted onto the new bridge.
