Project Cities – Clarkdale Bridge


Meeting Time


Project Description

The Project Cities Clarkdale Bridge Project is tackling the issues of the historic Bitter
Creek Bridge in Clarkdale, AZ, not being large enough. The bridge is not wide enough for two
cars traveling in opposite directions to have a safe, steady traffic flow. On top of making the
bridge wider for two-way traffic, the bridge also needs sidewalks, bike lanes, and to be
strengthened. While trying to accomplish these problems, the bridge also needs to maintain its
historical aesthetic. To accomplish these goals, a traffic study is being held in order to reclassify
the bridge to allow it to qualify for a grant. After the grant is in place, designs for the bridge will
be created.
