CHINO VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - The planned closure of a northern Arizona segment of State Route 89 for work on a new bridge has been rescheduled.

A four-hour closure of the highway for work on the new bridge across Hell Canyon north of Chino Valley was scheduled for Friday night, but state officials are rescheduling it for the night of May 13 and the early morning of May 14 due to anticipated inclement weather.

Workers will be pouring the new bridge’s concrete deck.

The closure will involve a stretch of highway connecting Interstate 40 with the Prescott area.

The new bridge will replace one built in 1954. The new bridge will have wider travel lanes and accommodate heavier loads.
