About the Project

  • The bridges were originally built in 1971 (Jim Camp Wash) and 1972 (Cottonwood Wash).
  • The bridges are being reconstructed concurrently, but in phases to keep US 180 open to the traveling public. This is being done by working on only half of the bridges at one time.
  • Phase I is now complete, and phase II is just beginning with the demolition of the second half of each bridge.

  • Expect short delays at the traffic signal.
  • A 14-foot, vehicle-width restriction is in place on both the bridges.
  • The speed limit is 15 mph on both the bridges.
