KINGMAN - Residents living near Bank Street between Northern and Jagerson avenues can take heart: Plans to perform final paving on the closed road are under way and work will begin in July.
Mohave County Public Works Director Steve Latoski said the $1.3 million project would be worth the wait.
"Mohave County appreciates the public's patience and cooperation while the project team and its partners complete the construction process and open a new road providing for vastly improved service to local residents, businesses and users," said Latoski.
He said the Arizona Department of Transportation and city of Kingman have "provided tremendous support" to the project, which included water system enhancements, widening, curb and gutter and drainage improvements.
The water system improvement work continues, while the widening and curb and gutter appears to be substantially complete.
Officials estimate the work will be completed later this summer. Until then, motorists will have to detour on either Melody or Benton streets. Business access is available from those two streets.
