Work begins next week on new bridge next to historic one-lane bridge in Pinal County

Work to install the new bridge upstream from the existing narrow, one-lane bridge on the Florence-Kelvin Highway will begin with construction of detours to maintain access to the existing bridge. This will allow ADOT to construct the new bridge parallel to the existing structure.

The older bridge, constructed in 1916, will remain in place and will be open for use by pedestrians and bicyclists as a link in the Arizona Trail.

The project will begin with approximately two weeks of clearing vegetation and earthwork, followed by the start of construction of the temporary bridge to provide construction access in mid-April.

The Florence-Kelvin Highway connects eastern Pinal County with the central part of the county.

The new bridge, which will feature two 12-foot travel lanes and four-foot shoulders, is scheduled to open in late 2017 or early 2018.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions and closures, but it’s possible that unscheduled impacts might occur because of weather or other factors. For the most current information about highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT’s Traveler Information site at, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511, except while driving.
