Work on the bridge over the Santa Cruz hit another milestone on Tuesday night as work crews poured the concrete for the deck of the first of two new bridges to span the river. The project is being done by the Town of Marana and ADOT in conjunction with other work.

When the project is completed, Ina Road from the freeway to Sivlerbell will be expanded to four lanes, giving it the same number of lanes as the road has east of the freeway.

Currently the first of two bridges is being built. One this new bridge is completed, the old bridge, which is currently carrying traffic in both directions, will be demolished and a second, two-lane bridge will be built.

The project will also build a bridge over I-10, letting Ina Road go over the freeway and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.
