Bridge work complete on SR 260 east of Payson

The Arizona Department of Transportation has completed a bridge rehabilitation project on State Route 260, approximately 20 miles east of Payson and will remove all existing traffic control devices today on Monday, July 20.

Last year, ADOT upgraded five eastbound bridge approaches on State Route 260 and then returned in the spring to replace and repave three westbound bridge approaches between mileposts 272-277.

The $2.9 million improvement project included the removal of the existing bridge approaches and departure slabs, repaving the roadway at the bridge approaches, guardrail reconstruction and the replacement of existing pavement markings.

Crews will repair a dip in the roadway on SR 260 eastbound at milepost 271 starting on Monday, August 3 which will require a single lane restriction through September 11.
