Final phase of repaving project on U.S. 93 begins
KINGMAN - The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin the final phase of a 7.5-mile repaving project on U.S. 93 from Grandview Avenue in downtown Kingman to Ranch Road near So-Hi Estates Monday.
Crews will apply the second layer of pavement beginning north of Kingman from So-Hi Estates to the Highway 68 traffic interchange, including the Coyote Pass section, from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Paving on U.S. 93 in downtown Kingman and the Highway 68 interchange ramps is scheduled to begin May 13 and end May 17. This work will take place 6 p.m. to 5 a.m.
While access to all businesses within the project limits will be maintained at all times during construction, motorists should expect delays and intermittent lane closures.
The top layer of pavement will be rubberized asphalt, which improves the quality of the roadway for an overall smoother ride. Rubberized asphalt can only be placed under certain temperature conditions to ensure it adheres to the first layer of asphalt properly.
This work will complete a paving project that started in fall 2011, which included applying the initial layer of asphalt pavement, repaving of the Highway 68 interchange ramps, and installing new curb and sidewalk on Beale Street.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
