Good afternoon,

With 2022 nearly in the rearview, it’s time to shift our focus forward.  What did we learn financially in 2022?  Many of us learned that inflation is real and that the financial decisions we make today can certainly impact our future financial success.  We are pleased to provide you access to another year of financial education through our partners at OneDigital.

You will find keys to success on OneDigital’s Financial Academy! Here you can access invitations to private webinars and on-demand replays at your fingertips. 

Each month, a OneDigital adviser will host a live education opportunity and offer tips you can use to succeed with your personal finances. 

Up next, we hope you’ll join us for: 

•               Inflation:  It’s More Than Just Charts and Graphs –  January 10th

•               Asset Allocation:  Your Guide Through Market Volatility – February 14th

•               Estate Planning 101 – March 14th

Joining live is ideal as you can engage in Q&A with our advisors, but keep in mind that all sessions are available OnDemand as well. 

Happy Holidays and Happy Savings!


Interstate 15 Black Rock Road Bridge construction project begins Jan. 9

Bridge work will require 24-hour restrictions on bridge and periodic restrictions on I-15
The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising drivers to plan for 24-hour traffic restrictions on the Black Rock Road Bridge over Interstate 15 beginning Monday morning, Jan. 9.  The bridge is located about two miles south of the Arizona-Utah state line (milepost 27) in the far northwestern part of the state. 

The bridge will be narrowed to one lane only of alternating east- and westbound travel. A temporary traffic signal will be in place for the duration of the project. 

A 12-foot vehicle width restriction will be in place. 

The speed will be reduced through the work zone. 

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

In addition, traffic restrictions will be in effect on north- and southbound I-15 when work below the bridge takes place.

The restrictions are needed so crews can safely work on increasing the lifespan of the bridge. Additional restrictions will be announced in the coming months as construction continues on the bridge rehabilitation project. The work will include:

Placing a concrete surface along the entire bridge decks, which is the top portion of a bridge that motorists drive on.
Repaving the approaches to provide a smooth transition to each bridge structure.
Removing and replacing the deck joints with new joints.
Removing and replacing the guardrails.
Other related work.

The project is scheduled to end in the spring.For more information, visit:
