LITTLEFIELD, Ariz. (AP) The state Department of Transportation has secured a federal grant to help fix a heavily traveled bridge in the northwest corner of the state.

Improvements to the bridge spanning the Virgin River Gorge bridge are expected to cost up to $250 million. The state will use a $21.6 million grant from its federal counterpart to replace the girders, decks and railings that don’t meet modern standards.

A paving project on the Arizona side of the interstate is expected to begin in July, with money also budgeted for a similar project in 2015.
