Notification & keeping you informed:

Residents and businesses have been notified of the work and project signs are up. The public should expect traffic impacts in all areas throughout the week. The much needed road repairs will likely result in some temporary traffic restrictions, noise and dust. Every attempt will be made to maintain access to businesses and residences. The City apologizes for any inconveniences caused by the work. We appreciate the community’s investment in our critical infrastructure and the public’s cooperation. This work is scheduled for daytime hours and City contractors and instructed to keep impacts as minimal as possible. Please note that construction areas inherently have many hazards as a result citizens and visitors should stay clear of construction sites. Signs are posted warning people not to enter the construction area in order to keep pedestrians and bicyclists from getting too close to work activities and deter the passerby who might be curious about the project from entering the space after work hours. Follow the posted signs to keep yourself safe and avoid an accident.
This work is part of the voter approved Prop 406 dedicated sales tax for road repair and street safety improvements, more than $100 million of infrastructure improvements scheduled to be completed over the next 20 years.
The City is committed to keeping our promise to our citizens to touch every street in Flagstaff and to keep everyone informed on the status of the project work. The City will send updates to local media, and will post these updates on the City website at www.flagstaff.az.gov/roadsafety, and on the City Facebook page.
