El Centro, Calif. — Construction crews will close the eastbound, and westbound Interstate 8 (I-8) left lanes of the Colorado River Bridge near Yuma, AZ, on Monday and Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. for bridge work.

The daytime closures are part of an ongoing project between Caltrans and the Arizona Department of Transportation to upgrade the I-8 Colorado River Bridge. The work includes resurfacing the bridge deck, replacing bearings at bridge hinge locations, and replacing approach slabs, defective guardrails, and seismic bearings.

Motorists are reminded to be Work Zone Alert if traveling in the area and to watch for highway workers and moving construction equipment.

The construction schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions, traffic incidents, or other construction-related reasons.
