Interchange meeting set

ADOT to offer new information on Rattlesnake Wash Tuesday

KINGMAN - The Arizona Department of Transportation has scheduled the second of three rounds of public meetings to update the public regarding a proposed traffic interchange on Interstate 40 near Rattlesnake Wash, east of Kingman.

ADOT will provide an update on the study's progress as well as present information about possible design alternatives. They are also requesting feedback from the public regarding elements and details of the project.

According to a news release from ADOT, "the Rattlesnake Wash Traffic Interchange study is part of a collaborative project between ADOT, the Federal Highway Administration and the City of Kingman to improve access to east Kingman and to relieve congestion at the East Kingman Traffic Interchange near Andy Devine Ave."

Ultimately, ADOT said, this project would include a new I-40 interchange approximately three miles east of Andy Devine Ave., with an underpass or overpass. Local street connections to Airway Ave., the Airport Industrial Park and Louise Ave. to Hualapai Mountain Road will also be included as part of the plan.

The Rattlesnake Wash project information will be presented at a time when the Kingman City Council is also taking a close look at the proposed Kingman Crossing. That interchange, if constructed, would be between the Andy Devine interchange and the Rattlesnake Wash interchange.

The meeting will be held from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Kingman Police Department Training Room, 2370 E. Andy Devine Ave. A brief presentation begins at 6 p.m.
