I-40 Anvil Rock Road Bridge Deck Replacement


The Arizona Department of Transportation is working on a bridge deck replacement project at the I-40 Anvil Rock Road Bridge west of Seligman in Yavapai County.

This project is located approximately 11 miles west of Seligman (milepost 109), and will include the removal and replacement of the existing bridge deck, which is the top surface of the bridge that motorists drive on, as well as the approach slabs, guardrail and pavement markings.

What to expect during construction

  • Work is scheduled from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, Sunday through Thursday. 
  • Temporary traffic control barriers are installed in the work zone.
  • I-40 is reduced intermittently to one lane. 
  • During bridge deck demolition, deck pouring and bridge barrier pouring operations, there will be times when full closures of I-40 will be necessary. This work will occur overnight, and traffic will be detoured around the work zone.
  • The speed is reduced in the work zone.
  • ADOT reminds drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

ADOT advises Seligman area drivers to plan for additional travel time to access eastbound Interstate 40 when a new temporary detour goes into effect at 8 a.m. Wednesday, July 13, through fall.

New temporary detour from northbound Anvil Rock Road to eastbound I-40:

  • Drivers will first travel westbound on I-40 and then follow the detour signs to the Jolly Road exit (Exit 103) to cross over I-40 and proceed eastbound on I-40. This is approximately a 12-mile detour.

The temporary detour from southbound Anvil Rock Road to westbound I-40 remains the same:

  • Drivers will first travel eastbound on I-40 and then follow detour signs to cross over I-40 on a paved section of temporary road to proceed westbound on I-40. This is approximately a 1-mile detour.
