U.S. Route 66 (Andy Devine Ave.) Milling and Paving Update
Milling and paving of Andy Devine Avenue (U.S. Route 66) from Stockton Hill Road to Michael Street (before the Interstate 40 interchange), began this week, and will continue through June 6. Motorists need to be mindful of construction personnel, slower speeds, and changes in traffic patterns. All businesses will remain open throughout the project, and crews will maintain business access with proper signage to direct the motoring public in and out of businesses safely.
Milling and Paving schedule next week:
The two southbound lanes will be closed starting the week of May 20. Closings will take place later in the morning, so motorists traveling after their morning commute should be mindful, if traveling back through the same area during the lunch hour.
- The southbound traffic will be moved to the newly-paved lanes, and crews will mill and pave the rest of U.S. Route 66. New striping will be done May 28 and 29.
The City of Kingman accepted control of this portion of U.S. Route 66, which includes all maintenance, from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) in 2004, as part of an intergovernmental agreement. This is common practice, when certain roadways are no longer part of the “state transportation system,” and turned over to local municipalities.
We appreciate everyone’s patience during this brief construction project, and look forward to a nice, smooth ride along Andy Devine Ave., once it is complete.
