Rehabilitation of Oxbow Bridge in
rural La Paz County begins Monday
The Arizona Department of Transportation, in cooperation with La Paz County, will begin rehabilitation work on Oxbow Bridge, formerly known as Cibola Bridge, beginning Monday (Sept. 19). The bridge, which spans the Colorado River, approximately 15 miles south of Ehrenberg will be closed to the public during construction.
The project consists of replacing and strengthening the wooden decks, replacing the barrier rails and paving the bridge. Construction is scheduled to take place Monday through Thursday between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. The $980,000 project is expected to be completed by January 2012.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
