adot-logo-webThe Arizona Department of Transportation is beginning a project to contain and prevent rock-fall hazards along the Interstate 40 Frontage Road (milepost 48), just south of the city of Kingman limits. In order for the construction crew to safely access the hill slopes, remove loose boulders and install a wire mesh for stabilization, the frontage road (also known as Route 66 in Perfume Canyon) will be closed weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting Wednesday, April 1. Highway detour/project signs are in place directing motorists to use I-40. After the rock scaling project is completed, crews will apply a chip-seal to the pavement through the work zone. The $400,000 project is expected to be completed in June.   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. For more information about this project, please call Michele Beggs at 928.681.6054 or mbeggs@azdot.gov. Information about all ADOT projects: email ADOT at projects@azdot.gov or call the ADOT information line at 1.855.712.8530.
