Proposed Action on U.S. 60 Pinto Creek Bridge and Section 4(f) Report

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are proposing to take action at the Pinto Creek Bridge, located on U.S. 60 at milepost 238.25 in Gila County, about six miles west of Miami, Ariz. The possible proposed actions for the Pinto Creek Bridge are:

  1. No build
  2. Build a new bridge and remove the existing bridge
  3. Rehabilitate the existing bridge
  4. Build a new bridge and rehabilitate the existing bridge

ADOT is pursuing option No. 2 noted above: Build a new bridge and remove the existing bridge.

The Pinto Creek Bridge was built to standards in 1949; however, those standards no longer meet the current minimum FHWA, American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and ADOT Bridge Design Guidelines.  The purpose of this project is to address a structurally-deficient and functionally obsolete bridge structure while ensuring that the travelling public is provided a reliable bridge crossing over Pinto Creek preserving the continuity of the US 60 and its function as a major transportation link.
