Bids open for U.S. 93 repairs at Coyote Pass

KINGMAN - Motorists may see progress on road repairs to U.S. 93 at Coyote Pass going into Golden Valley from Kingman.

The Arizona Department of Transportation opened bids for the project on May 26, said Michele Beggs, the department's Kingman community relations officer.

"This is definitely a priority," Beggs said.

According to information from ADOT, the work area extends from milepost 63.8, west of Grandview Avenue in Kingman, to 71.3 on U.S. 93 and from milepost 25.7 to 27.2 on Highway 68. The contractor awarded the bid will have to mill and replace the existing asphalt, remove an existing bridge railing and replace it with a concrete bridge barrier, replace pavement markings, repave interchange ramps and more.

The Arizona Transportation Board will consider and possibly award the bid at its June 17 meeting. If the board awards the bid, work could start as soon as July. The repairs are expected to cost $10 million.

The area was slated for repairs last year but due to state budget problems ADOT pushed the project forward to this year.
