KINGMAN – Kingman city officials have been working with the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) for decades regarding the need for the Rancho Santa Fe Traffic Interchange. The city is happy to announce that they have officially received the $20 million contribution from the State of Arizona in order to make this project a reality.

“The money is in the bank and we are excited for the progress being made on this project,” City of Kingman Mayor Ken Watkins said. “We can’t thank former State Representative Regina Cobb and Mohave County Supervisor, Chairman Travis Lingenfelter enough for all of their hard work and dedication to making this funding opportunity possible.”

The $20 million contribution from the State will be added to the monies that the City of Kingman and developer, KDP Manager, LLC, have dedicated to meet the project funding needs.

For over 40 years, the Rancho Santa Fe traffic interchange (previously known as Rattlesnake Wash) has been identified as critical transportation infrastructure needed to boost the economic vitality of northwest Arizona. The interchange and connector roads will connect Kingman’s Municipal Airport and Industrial Park to I-40 and the future I-11 commerce corridor. 

City Manager Ron Foggin said, “This project is vital to the growth of our community and will open up some much needed industrial opportunities in the city for those companies looking to bring their business to Kingman.”
