Tonto Creek Bridge open for drivers in Gila County

The bridge over the Tonto Basin in Gila County is now open to the public. The area is prone to flooding during monsoon season, and in the winter when snow melts. Eight people have died in the past 30 years while trying to cross the creek during flooding. In November 2019, three children were swept away by raging water while riding in a truck trying to cross the flooded wash.
