What's New...

Work on the remaining new sewer system was completed on Thursday and the detour around the construction zone will be removed Friday evening. The County’s contractor was delayed from completing this project for two weeks due to soil instability that was unexpectedly encountered by crews working 20+ feet below grade on the last 100 feet of the project at the intersection of Kachina Trail and Kachina Boulevard. Soil instability at this depth, which is very difficult to assess prior to a project’s groundbreaking, posed serious safety issues during the deep trench work for the new sewer lines and laterals. Crews are currently installing a temporary all-weather surface along Kachina Trail that will be in place when the Kachina Trail Pavement Reconstruction Project starts early next month. Final work on the project, which includes the switchover to the new sewer system, is scheduled to be completed next Tuesday, weather permitting.  

The contract for the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT)-managed Kachina Trail Reconstruction Project will be awarded at the State Transportation Board meeting today. Crews are expected to mobilize for construction during the week of June 5.
