KINGMAN, Ariz. – The project to reconstruct curb, sidewalks, and driveways along Andy Devine Avenue from North Fifth St. to Hall St., has been substantially completed. Virtually no city funding was used for this project, as it was 99% federally funded through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Sidewalks, driveways and ramps are now Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant, and the city improved streetscaping and landscaping.

A crosswalk was not installed across Beale Street approaching Andy Devine Ave., as safety concerns played a major role in that decision. With the speed of vehicles driving downhill, and proximity of the crosswalk to the uncontrolled intersection, it is not safe to encourage pedestrian traffic at that intersection.

Engraved bricks that were located along the route have been saved for a future project near the Powerhouse Visitor Center.

The project contract was awarded to local contractor T.R. Orr.
