Flagstaff residents can breathe a sigh of relief as a major road work project is set to end soon.
The Lockett Road street repair project has given locals a summer and fall of noise and dust along North Beaver Street. The headache will soon be over as the project, which included stormwater improvements, replacement, and edge improvements, is scheduled to be completed by month’s end.
This week, work is slated to begin on installing protective channel mats in Fanning Wash. All other work in the area will be done in the next few weeks.
The $3.1 million project started in April. 10 blocks of water mains and six blocks of storm sewer and catch basins were added. Pavement on Lockett Road was also removed and replaced.
Another project is also set to finish underground utility work and road paving by the end of the month. Improvements to Zuni Drive were budgeted at $2.8 million for a new water main from Lake Mary Road to the 800 block of Zuni Drive. The project also provided new fire hydrants, a new sanitary sewer main, and new road pavement from Cochise Drive to the 800 block of Zuni Drive. Once the road paving is complete, the stormwater system improvements will be implemented.
