Mohave Road bridge project won’t close the road completely, detours for larger vehicles

The Mohave Road bridge project now underway by the CRIT Planning Department will not close the route completely, but there will be detours for larger vehicles and a 12-foot restriction.

As the main road through the Colorado River Indian Tribes reservation, Mohave Road (also known as CRIR 1) is a major thoroughfare linking the town of Parker and I-10. In recent weeks, CRIT announced a bridge reconstruction on the road at Tyson Wash.

The public is advised to avoid the route if possible, using US-95 on the California side of the Colorado River (Blythe to Parker via Vidal Junction) or Arizona SR-95 (Quartzsite to Parker).

The road will not be completely closed at any time, according to CRIT, with a 12-foot lane restriction and detours for semis and other large vehicles to US-95. But there may be delays as traffic slows while using a small detour.

The project is necessary to replace the aging bridge over the wash. The project should take around a year.
