Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation considers bridge
The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation of Arizona is considering building a bridge to make it easier to access the reservation.

The tribe hasn't made any final decisions and is talking to local communities about the project. But tribal leaders say a bridge would make it easier for employees and visitors to get to the reservation.

The bridge would be built across the Salt River. It would connect two highways and provide a more direct route to the reservation from the East Phoenix area.
