The Arizona Department of Transportation has initiated a project to replace the Virgin River Bridge No. 1 along Interstate 15 with a new bridge that will increase safety and help the regional corridor to continue carrying commerce for decades to come. The bridge replacement project is near the community of Littlefield. Work will include replacing the abutment foundations, piers and the bridge deck of the bridge. New pavement, pavement markings, guardrail and signage also are included in the project. Work is anticipated to be completed by May 2024.
