PRESS RELEASE | Phase One of the Parks Road Reconstruction Project Breaks Ground This Week



FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Coconino County is scheduled to break ground this week on the first phase of the Parks Roads Reconstruction Project. The $1.5 million project includes the replacement of approximately 1.2 miles of deteriorated pavement on Parks Road, Old Route 66, and Government Prairie Road. These improvements will extend roadway life, improve rideability, and reduce road maintenance costs. Funded entirely by Prop. 403, which county voters approved in 2014, the project also includes shoulder rehabilitation along these roads.

The county’s contractor, C and E Paving and Grading LLC. of Flagstaff, is scheduled to work weekdays during daylight hours throughout the duration of the project. During construction operations, flaggers, signage, and other traffic control will be used to guide vehicles through the construction zone.

Drivers should expect delays, plan travel accordingly, and are encouraged to use extra caution and obey posted speed limits though the construction zone.

This project is slated for a mid-October completion; however, the schedule is subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.

During the project, construction information will be regularly updated and posted on the project’s web page at www.coconino.az.gov/ParksRoadsProject. For more information about this project please contact Coconino County Public Works at (928) 679-8300.
