ADOT replacing US 160 Chinle Wash bridge on Navajo Nation

ADOT warns of 30 minute delays

PHOENIX — A $6 million Arizona Department of Transportation project, which started May 7, is creating a new US 160 bridge at Chinle Wash in northeastern Arizona.

Those using US 160 through the area should expect delays up to 20 minutes with this work underway at milepost 429, just west of Mexican Water on the Navajo Nation. A temporary traffic signal will have traffic alternating through one lane on the existing bridge.

The new three-span bridge will be 280 feet long and nearly 9 feet wider than the current bridge. The project, which scheduled to finish by year’s end, also will realign the roadway and install new pavement markings, among other improvements.

More information on this and other projects is available at azdot.gov/Projects (see Northeast District Projects).
