The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers on Highway 89 to prepare for delays at Meath Wash Bridge (milepost 357) near Ash Fork from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, according to a news release.

Crews will be shifting traffic onto the new north- and southbound sections of the roadway. Drivers can expect:
