McConnell Drive in Flagstaff will be closed for about six weeks, starting Monday, for bridge work. ADOT crews have closed the road, in both directions, to replace the McConnell Bridge on Interstate 17/Milton Road. For NAU access, motorists can use South Milton Road to University Drive to South Knoles Drive. For west Flagstaff access, motorists can use South Milton Road to West Forest Meadows Street to Beulah Boulevard. The project involves a full bridge deck replacement, bridge widening and sidewalk construction on the north side of McConnell Drive. Work is scheduled in three phases over two years, with the project expected to be completed in the fall of 2020. The area will be reopened on Monday, August 19th.
