KINGMAN – The City of Kingman’s Beale Street Scape and Improvement Project has completed phase one of this multi stage project. Construction now moves down Beale Street, to the next block, with construction activities expected on phase two continuing for the next few months. “We are pleased with the progression of the project. The last few items in Phase I will be completed while crews begin work on Phase II. Some of the challenges have been plan adjustments and long manufacturing times for materials, such as street lights. We are currently two weeks ahead of schedule and on budget,” said Curtis Larson, Project Manager.
The project improvements are addressing infrastructure gaps and deficiencies by upgrading the pedestrian environment with compliant sidewalks, ramps, and driveways per Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. The improvements will also include landscaping, way-finding, street furniture, and other site amenities within the existing right-of-way. All these features contribute to the project’s place-making and development of a downtown theme and identity.
