El Centro, Calif. — Construction crews will close one lane on westbound and eastbound Interstate 8 (I-8) on the Colorado River Bridge near Yuma, AZ Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. for bridge work, according to Caltrans.

Additionally, the eastbound 4th street on-ramp will be closed Thursday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

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, replace bearings at bridge hinge locations, as well as replace approach slabs, defective guardrail, and seismic bearings.

The construction work schedule is subject to change due to weather, traffic incidents, or other maintenance considerations. Travelers are reminded to watch for highway workers and moving equipment and to Be Work Zone Alert.
