Mohave County Public Works urges drivers to be aware of  weather conditions and forecasts. In instances where County-maintained roads and streets  sustain damage from monsoon weather, road maintenance crews will prioritize the repair, restoration, and cleanup of affected roads over some regularly scheduled maintenance activities. In the Arizona Strip, crews will be performing storm cleanup and repairs. In the Meadview area, blades will be assisting with storm cleanup and repairs. In the Kingman area, crews will be doing storm repair in the Butler area, sweeping and repairing shoulders, and working north to south. The Kingman blades will be assisting with storm cleanup and repairs on Hualapai Mt. Rd, Lazy Y-U, and DW Ranch Rd. In Golden Valley, crews will be working on storm cleanup and repair.
