The Arizona Department of Transportation is accepting bids for the long-delayed renovation of the century-old Chevelon Creek Bridge—a project estimated at $1,379,000.

Scope of Work

The Navajo County project includes cleaning and recoating existing structural steel surfaces on the Warren Pony truss bridge over Chevelon Canyon. The surfaces are coated with lead-based paint; containment will be required.

The steel will be cleaned with a coating removal system proposed by the contractor and approved by ADOT. The steel will then be recoated with a three-coat organic zinc-rich system. An anti-graffiti coating will also be applied.

The project also includes replacing the existing deck and repairing truss and abutment surfaces, as well as installing new guard railing.

Renovation of the Chevelon Creek Bridge has been stalled for years due to lack of funding. The bridge is currently rated at less than 30 percent sufficiency. The restoration is estimated at nearly $1.4 million.

The contract is estimated at $1,379,000.  Bids are due June 21.

About the Bridge

The bridge was built in 1913 by the Missouri Valley Bridge and Iron Company of Leavenworth, KS, when the State of Arizona did a truss replacement as part of the Transcontinental Route. The bridge was constructed for $4,985, just $515 shy of its $5,500 budget.

The Chevelon Creek Bridge, 102 feet long and 14 feet wide, was added to the National Register of Historic Places on Dec. 8, 1983. Also known as the Missouri Valley Bridge Company, the Missouri Valley Bridge and Iron Company has built several structures that are now listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. 

Renovation Overdue

The bridge restoration project began before June 2002 and has gone through multiple attempts to get to the construction stage, The Arizona Journal reported.

“This project has been on the books for quite a while,”  Navajo County Engineer and Assistant Public Works Director William Bess told the news outlet.

“We went to bid in 2006 during the construction boom,” said Bess. “All the bids came in too high.”

At the time, the cost of the restoration was estimated at $503,800, but bids came in at two and three times that cost. The project was shelved until 2010, when the county became eligible for funding from ADOT and the Northern Arizona Council of Governments.

By then, an ADOT inspection rated the structure below 30 percent “sufficiency.”
