The Interstate 40 Perkins Valley Road overpass in Holbrook is restricted for repairs that began on Sunday.
The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for an around-the-clock lane closure of the northbound lane of the Perkins Valley Road overpass on I-40 at exit 283 in Holbrook through Friday while crews complete repairs to the bridge deck.
Eastbound I-40 will also be closed underneath the bridge and westbound I-40 will be closed through Wednesday while crews complete bridge repair work. Interstate closure times are expected from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Drivers should allow extra time and adjust their travel times accordingly while the following traffic restrictions are in place:
Perkins Valley Road will be reduced to one lane only of alternating north- and southbound travel over the bridge.
Onsite flaggers will direct drivers through the work zone along Perkins Valley Road and the on- and off-ramps.
12-foot vehicle width restrictions will be in place for vehicles using the Perkins Valley Road overpass.
While I-40 is closed underneath the bridge, traffic will use the off- and on-ramps at Exit 283 to get around the closure. A 16-foot vehicle width restriction will be in place for this detour.
The restrictions are needed so crews can safely repair the bridge deck.
