Anvil Rock Road Bridge rehabilitation project over Interstate 40 west of Seligman to begin May 9

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for ongoing traffic restrictions when the Anvil Rock Road Bridge construction project over Interstate 40 begins Monday, May 9. The bridge is located west of Seligman (milepost 109) in Yavapai County. 

Motorists should expect the following travel restrictions through fall 2022:

  • East- and westbound I-40 will be 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 will also be in place.
    • The speed limit will be 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. 

Detour signs will be clearly posted when the detour is in place.

Access to the I-40 on and off-ramps at Anvil Rock Road will be maintained at all times. The following temporary detour will be in place for motorists: 

  • Detour from south Anvil Rock Road to westbound I-40: Drivers will first travel eastbound on Interstate 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.
  • Detour from north Anvil Rock Road to eastbound I-40: Drivers will first travel westbound on Interstate 40 and then follow detour signs to cross over I-40 on a paved section of temporary road to proceed eastbound on I-40. This is approximately a 1-mile detour.

The $2.7 million project 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.
