Bank Street between Northern and Jagerson Avenues will be closed for repairs and widening starting at 9 a.m. today.

It will remain closed until late summer to allow the Arizona Department of Transportation and Mohave County to repair the pavement, add a center left turn lane and install curbs and gutters.

The cost of the project is $1.3 million.

Northbound traffic will be asked to use Northern Avenue to Melody Street in order to avoid the closed section and southbound traffic will be rerouted along Jagerson Avenue to Benton Street.

The speed limit on the detour routes is 25 mph.

"It's not uncommon for Arizona Department of Transportation to administer projects that utilize federal funds, particularly in rural areas. The project is primarily funded through federal funds with a 5.7 percent county match," wrote ADOT spokesman Dustin Krugal in an email to the Miner.

"A requirement of federal funding involves ADOT serving as the federal liaison for project construction administration and engineering."

According to County Public Works Department Director Steve Latoski the pavement has reached the end of its useful life and there is enough traffic on the street to warrant a center turn lane.

New bus stops

KINGMAN - The work on Bank Street means that three Kingman Area Regional Transit stops - at Thompson, John L and Northern avenues - have been discontinued.

Starting today, new temporary bus stops are at Melody Street at Devlin Avenue, Melody Street at Northern Avenue and the west side of the parking lot at King's Liquor Mart., 4495 N. Bank St.

Call KART at (928) 681-7433 for more information.

Well for the folks that don't know $&it. Back in 2006 they said they would widen bank from jag to northern, due to the fact that it's one of the heaviest traveled roads in Kingman. Also back then the population of Butler area had a population equal to the city's. Bet most of you don't know this either all the corner lots along bank up to jaguerson are commercial lots. Just hope they put a sidewalk in on one side atleast and do a bike lanes.

I have to agree with TK it should not take that long for the job on Bank St.

It would make more sense to widen Northern Ave from Castle Rock to Highway 66.

No wonder. All those that know the difference between state and county please raise your hand. Would those living immediately on Bank Street signify in the same manner? ..UH HUH just as I thought.Those who blame the state for wrecking their car at 75 MPH since you can't miss the defects at that speed please signify by raising your right hand...UH HUH just as I thought

@R

"In the meantime there are streets in the heart of town that have no curbs and some east of 66 that have no street, just dirt!
This Bank Street deal is a waste, spending money just for the sake of spending money."

And just why would Mohave County be interested in working on the streets in Kingman? Hmmmm.....

Complain complain complain. It seems the same folks who gripe about the need for improvements are the same ones who gripe about it getting done. Deal with it!!!!

Maybe in articles like this the KDM should publish what the criterion is for paving roads in town. I've heard that if under a certain acreage is privately owned it is up to the residents to pay for paving? Also how did N. Central St. between Hualapai Mt. and Karen get paved? Who paid for it, and how did it get the go ahead over other streets in town? There aren't any "completed" houses on this stretch of road.

Oh,this is a very important project, just go ask the county supervisors.

As I wrote a number of years ago, wouldn't it make more sense to pave Bank from Jaegerson to the NORTH, which is still a lot of dirt road?

I think the project is part of a long-term plan to take some of the pressure off of Stockton Hill Road by widening Bank Street and encouraging more development there. As it is, Stockton Hill Road has just been becoming more and more of a bottleneck through town.

Article comment by: Two different Issues

Bank St & I-40 are maintained by 2 different Gov't Entities. Mohave County vs Federal/State. Speak to ADOT or the Fed Hwy Commission regarding I-40. I agree Bank St is not a big issue, but if they ignore it now it will become a big issue and then the $$ wont be there.

Under repair until late Summer? ...Seriously? Bank Street should change it's name to Dairy Farm Street because ADOT & Mohave sure do know how to milk something....

I drive this route to and from work. Its essentially a straight shot to work. I am trying to figure out why this was a necessary project? I was not complaining about the road conditions.

Is this Bank Street project so much more important the the repair of Highway 40..??
That road (40) is destroying our vehicles and has been ignored for years....
At 75 mph...it's almost impossible to miss the problems....some of us have no choice but to travel Hwy 40 east of Kingman...
