The Arizona Department of Transportation is completing a bridge deck replacement project along Interstate 10 near Vail.

The two bridges are located at the Colossal Cave/Wentworth Road and State Route 83 interchanges. Crews will complete the work on one bridge at a time. Each bridge deck will be replaced half at a time to maintain traffic flow while work is underway.

Traffic Impacts

  • SR 83 is reduced to a single lane with a temporary signal controlling traffic over I-10.
  • Overnight bridge closures will be required during much of the project.
  • I-10 will be reduced to a single lane most overnights when crews are working.
  • Westbound I-10 exit ramp and connector road between SR 83 and the frontage road north of I-10 will close from Feb. 9, through late Feb. for guardrail work
  • Expect delays over several months.


Work is expected to extend through late fall 2020. 

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
