Ganado Wash bridge work requires State Route 264 closures

Plan for delays and consider alternate routes on Jan. 4 while bridge girders are set

With the new year comes phase one of a new bridge over the Ganado Wash on State Route 264 in northeastern Arizona.  The Arizona Department of Transportation is scheduled to set 12 bridge girders on Wednesday, Jan. 4, requiring a series of highway closures that will impact drivers in both directions.

  • East- and westbound SR 264 will be closed in 30-minute increments at milepost 446 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. while work is underway. Milepost 446 is a half mile west of the intersection of SR 264 and US 191 South in Ganado.
  • Drivers should plan for delays of at least 30 minutes.  Access will be permitted only for emergency responders when feasible.  After each bridge girder is set and braced, traffic will be allowed through the work area.  

Schedules are subject to change because of weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

The work is part of a $24 million highway safety improvement project on SR 264 from the community of Burnside to Ganado on the Navajo Nation. In addition to replacing the bridge, ADOT is paving and widening the roadway; replacing or installing guardrail and signage; and completing other roadway and safety improvements.  The project began in  August 2016 and is scheduled for completion in October 2017.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions and closures, but it’s possible that unscheduled impacts might occur because of weather or other factors. For the most current information about highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT’s Travel Information Site at, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511, except while driving.
