Motorists should also plan for the following ongoing travel restrictions that are currently in place: 

  • East- and westbound I-40 reduced to one lane in each direction under the Anvil Rock Road Bridge throughout the duration of the construction project. 
    • An 18-foot width restriction through the work zone.
    • The speed limit is reduced in the work zone.
  • During the bridge deck demolition, deck pouring and bridge barrier pouring operations, there will be times when full closures of I-40 will be necessary. To minimize traffic disruptions, the full closures will occur overnight, and traffic will be detoured around the work zone. 

The $2.7 million project, expected to be completed this fall, includes 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.
