FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - State transportation officials are advising drivers to plan for a weeklong closure of Historic Route 66 in downtown Flagstaff for bridge work starting next Thursday, June 10.

The Arizona Department of Transportation said detour signs will be in place to route traffic around the closure of Historic Route 66, also known as Business Loop 40, in front of Flagstaff City Hall.

The department said part of Historic Route 66 will be closed so crews can install precast bridge girders and pour a new deck for the Rio de Flag bridge.
