Bridge construction closes Eastern Avenue

KINGMAN - Construction on a bridge improvement project will require an overnight closure of Eastern Avenue under Interstate 40 on Thursday from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Crews will pour a new bridge deck over the BNSF railroad, which also runs under the interstate at Eastern Avenue.

ADOT recommends motorists traveling north of I-40 to use Airway Avenue to Andy Devine Avenue. Motorists traveling south of the interstate are advised to use Hualapai Mountain Road to Andy Devine Avenue.

ADOT expects to complete the $3.9 million improvement project this fall.
