In conjunction with the City of Prescott, ADOT is set to begin a bridge replacement project the week of January 6, 2020. The project consists of removing the existing Government Canyon Bridge and constructing a new concrete bridge on Overland Road, between East Gurley Street and Cactus Drive. In addition to this work, the project includes the removal and replacement of asphaltic concrete pavement, guardrail installation, and striping work.
Once complete, this project will replace and widen the aging Government Canyon bridge. The project is scheduled to be complete in summer 2020.
