If time allows, workers will be patching potholes as needed. A blade will be repairing storm damage on Gregg’s Hideout Rd. before moving onto Pierce Ferry Rd. shoulders. Off Hwy 93 north of Kingman, a blade will be doing storm repair on Temple Bar Rd. while farther south, another blade will be working on Cottonwood Rd. In the Kingman area, crews in the Butler area will be repairing drainages on Northern Ave. and Diagonal Way to connect to the catch basin at the intersection of Castle Rock Rd. and Northern Ave. A blade will be working in the Cactus Wren area. In Golden Valley, crews will be working on storm cleanup and repair.
