Scottsdale will move $13.2 million from other city projects to fund emergency work on two of the city’s most well-trafficked bridges: the 68th Street bridge and the Drinkwater Bridge.

The city closed Drinkwater Bridge in July and restricted traffic to two lanes at the 68th Street bridge in January after severe concrete deterioration was found.

The city estimates it will spend approximately $4.65 million to rebuild the 68th Street bridge and $8.57 million for Drinkwater Bridge repairs.

Funding will come from several projects in the city’s Capital Improvement Plan, including for sidewalk repairs, trail improvements, streetlight replacement and unpaved roads.
