According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, “A new Queen Creek Bridge will be constructed just to the east of the existing bridge. The existing steel bridge will remain in place and be fenced off following construction of the new bridge. The Waterfall Canyon Bridge, located east of the Queen Creek Tunnel, will be reconstructed in its existing location. Guardrail replacement and other general maintenance work will also be completed within and near the Queen Creek Tunnel.” The projects are supposed to start in early 2024 and finish in 2027.
