Public Works crews continue working hard to get National Trails
Highway reopened after incurring damage from the September 2014 storms.
Bridge No. 32 approach is rebuilt.
The storms in September damaged sections of National Trails Highway
from Hector Road to Amboy. The most extensive damage was along National Trails
Highway where approximately 40 bridges were damaged along with major portions of the
roadway. Sections between Hector Road to Crucero Road (Newberry Springs/Ludlow
area), Crucero Road to Amboy Road, and Cadiz Road to Mountain Springs Road at Interstate
40 have been closed pending roadway repairs, shoulder repairs and bridge evaluations.
Bridge No. 32 repair nearing completion.
Public Works crews reopened the first stretch of the road, Hector
Road to Crucero Road, in November. The photos above are on National Trails
Highway, three miles east of Ludlow. The crews are anticipating opening this
next section from Ludlow to Amboy sometime in January 2015.
