I-10 Bridges over the Gila River Project Mileposts 172 – 174

The I-10 Bridges Over the Gila River Project will replace the existing two-lane bridges with new three-lane bridges with wide shoulders and reconstruct the existing two-lane roadway approaches as three lane roadways in each direction with wide shoulders in the median of I-10. The Gila River Bridge is about 1,400 feet long.

A construction award was made on January 12, 2024 after a winning bid of $50.9 million was received for construction costs. Construction on the bridge began May 13, 2024, and is expected to last through 2026.
