Traffic will be controlled by flaggers and a pilot car. Starting Monday (July 16), work will continue to complete repair of the bridge deck expansion joints on the Black Canyon Irrigation Canal Bridge. Installation of new asphalt curbs and new guardrail will also start in this last phase of the project, which is expected to finish by the end of the month.
