ADOT crews are getting ready to start a 10-month project to replace the bridge over Meath Wash on Highway-89 south of Ash Fork. Preliminary work on the $2.9 million project will begin Monday. ADOT says the north-and-southbound shoulders of Highway-89 will be closed and the speed limit will be reduced. The bridge will close in early March and remain closed for about 6-months. A temporary detour around the bridge will be constructed to maintain 1-lane of traffic in each direction at all times while the bridge work is being conducted.
