Westbound US Highway 60, also known as the Superstition Freeway, will close from 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23, through 5 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24, near Ironwood Drive for bridge repair work to be conducted by the Arizona Department of Transportation, according to a press release issued by the city of Apache Junction.
The Ironwood and Idaho Road westbound entrance ramps to US Highway 60 will be closed. Westbound traffic on US Highway 60 will exit at Ironwood and be routed north to Southern Avenue and then west to Signal Butte, according to the release. Vehicles traveling westbound will be able to access US Highway 60 at Signal Butte.
As a reminder, Meridian Road is closed in both directions at US Highway 60 to allow ADOT to build two new ramps connecting Meridian Road to US Highway 60. When completed, the ramps will allow eastbound traffic to exit and westbound traffic to enter US Highway 60 at Meridian Road, according to the release.
Meridian is expected to reopen to traffic by late July.
The interchange project is expected to be completed at the end of 2015. Information about both closures is available on ADOT’s website.
