Expect Delays on State Route 264If traveling on SR264 near milepost 446, plan for delays and consider alternate routes. The Arizona Department of Transportation is scheduled to finish one side of the bridge and begin demolition of the other side which may impact drivers in both directions. The turn lanes into the park will be affected for 3-4 week beginning March 7, 2017.
Drivers should plan for delays of at least 30 minutes. Access will be permitted only for emergency responders when feasible. After each bridge girder is set and braced, traffic will be allowed through the work area.
The work is part of a $24 million highway safety improvement project on SR 264 from the community of Burnside to Ganado on the Navajo Nation. In addition to replacing the bridge, ADOT is paving and widening the roadway; replacing or installing guardrail and signage; and completing other roadway and safety improvements. The project began in August 2016 and is scheduled for completion in October 2017.
