FLAGSTAFF, Ariz – The Lockett-Fourth Street Roundabout project construction schedule has been delayed and construction is now expected to be completed in 2025. The full intersection closure of Lockett Road, Cedar Avenue and Fourth Street required to construct the project will now take place during the summer of 2025. The delay was caused by complexities related to utility relocations, right-of-way acquisitions, finalizing the project design, and amendments to the Intergovernmental Agreement.
The Lockett-Fourth Street Roundabout project will install a roundabout to replace the signalized intersection at Fourth Street and Cedar Avenue/ Lockett Road. This roadway safety improvement project is the result of the City submitting a grant application to ADOT in 2018 for a competitive Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) award. This project was identified as a high priority through a local network crash data screening process. The roundabout will improve safety, slow speeds, help reduce high severity crashes, and will add a crosswalk at the fourth leg of the intersection. Pedestrian Actuated Rapid Flashing Beacons will be installed at all crossings.
