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. 

Current Traffic Impacts

Colossal Cave/Wentworth Road over Interstate 10 is scheduled to open to traffic by early morning Saturday, Aug. 1. 

While the bridge deck replacement has been completed, overnight closures of Colossal Cave/Wentworth Road at I-10 will continue for about two weeks while crews replace guardrail on eastbound I-10. Each night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., eastbound I-10 traffic will be directed off of I-10 using the exit ramp and will reenter I-10 using the entrance ramp.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained throughout the work.

Starting later in August, final guardrail work at the following locations will require occasional restrictions or ramp closures:

  • Ramps at the Colossal Cave/Wentworth Road interchange
  • The ramp from westbound I-10 to SR 83
  • The I-10 frontage road north of I-10 near SR 83 and the connector road between SR 83 and the frontage road


Work is expected to extend through early fall 2020. 

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