KINGMAN – The City of Kingman street division has almost completed milling the top layer and restriping Andy Devine Avenue on El Trovatore Hill as of Friday. Traffic had been hindered since Monday as crews had to block off lanes between 8th and Hall streets for the project.

Expect minor delays this week as crews do more patchwork on the road. The work is expected to be completed by Wednesday, weather permitting. Thursday’s wind storm slightly hampered the repair efforts.

“This is the last step for a while,” said Street Superintendent Jack Plaunty.

The next step will be Americans with Disabilities Act improvements such as curb ramp replacements near Andy Devine Avenue area crosswalks, but the funds for those improvements won’t roll in until late summer. Until then, Plaunty asked drivers to be patient and play it safe.

“Slow down. Even with reduced speeds people were speeding,” he said. “It’s just a matter of safety for both the motorists and workers.”
