PHOENIX — A U.S. Highway 191 bridge about 7 miles north of the entrance to the Morenci mine will close at noon Thursday, Feb. 28, for urgently needed repairs to
A friend of mine who rides also drives one of the haul trucks down in the Morenci mine and said today that the closure will be indefinite. There has been some discussion over the past few months that AZDOT doesn't want the expense of maintaining that section of road from Alpine to Morenci due to the small amount of traffic that it supports, and the mine is going to expand and eat into some of the lower end of 191, so who knows?
If I hear anything to the contrary I'll post it up.
