Coyote Pass road repair work starts Monday
Actual repaving won't start for a few weeks; project work will wrap up in mid-December
KINGMAN - The long-awaited road repair of an area of U.S. 93 known as Coyote Pass starts Monday and will continue into December.
Arizona Department of Transportation spokesperson Michele Beggs said the actual repaving of 7.5 miles of road between Grandview Avenue and Ranch Road won't start till mid-August.
These first few weeks will be filled with preliminary work such as removing sections of curb and the barrier at Johnson Wash, Beggs said.
Once repaving work starts, it will last till mid-October, as there is a specific window of time during warm temperatures that crews have to repave the road, she said. After the road has been repaved, crews will begin permanent striping work, which will last into December.
According to the bid results, additional work includes removal and replacement of bridge railing, removal and replacement of guardrail end terminal and resetting manholes.
Expect intermittent lane closures and reduced speed limits from the time work begins to when it's completed. Work will occur during the day and evening, and interchange ramps will be repaved as well, Beggs said.
"(However), all business access will be maintained," Beggs said.
Bullhead City's McCormick Construction Co. was awarded the project with its bid of $5,285,968, beating out Prescott's Fann Contracting and Tempe's FNF Construction, Inc.
