Material testing on 89 requires narrow travel lanes at Meath Wash bridge
Drivers requiring lanes wider than 12 feet should seek alternate route
Travel lanes on Highway 89 at the Meath Wash Bridge near Ash Fork will be narrowed to 12 feet next week and the speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph to create a safe work zone for crews doing soil and materials testing.
Drivers with loads wider than 12 feet must find an alternate route. Restrictions will be in place daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27, through Friday, March 3. The Meath Wash Bridge is on 89, about five miles south of Interstate 40.
The work is required for the design of a project to replace the bridge.
Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
