Ina Road bridge over I-10 opens

MARANA, AZ (KOLD News 13) - The Ina Road Project moved a step closer to completion on Thursday, March 14, with the reopening of Ina Road over I-10.

Ramp access to and from the freeway is still at least a week away, according to Arizona Department of Transportation spokesman Tom Herrmann.

The project to reconstruct the interchange began in February 2017. Key project elements for Ina Road included:

  • Reconstructing the I-10/Ina Road interchange
  • Widening I-10 to three lanes in each direction
  • Widening Ina Road to two lanes in each direction from Silverbell Road to Camino de la Cruz
  • Eliminating the at-grade crossing of Ina Road and the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR)
  • Loweing I-10 to run beneath Ina Road and raising Ina Road to run above I-10
  • Reconstructing the I-10 frontage roads
  • Building two Ina Road bridges over the Santa Cruz River

The next improvement project will be Ruthrauff Road, scheduled to begin Summer 2019.
