Repairs to a four-mile stretch of Townsend-Winona Road will start next week.
Coconino County secured a $1.4 million emergency maintenance contract with C & E Paving and Grading for the construction of the Townsend-Winona Road Repair Project.
Funded by Prop. 403, the project was approved by the Board of Supervisors on April 2, 2019. It includes milling of two inches of existing asphalt and the installation of approximately 2.5 inches of asphalt on the travel lanes and shoulders of Townsend-Winona Road between U.S. Highway 89 and just east of Rio Rancho Road. This section of roadway was severely impacted by freeze/thaw cycles that created numerous potholes along the roadway during the winter. Left unrepaired, the pavement would continue to deteriorate and require a complete reconstruction.
“I would like to thank all the constituents who reached out to my office with their concerns regarding the conditions on Townsend-Winona Road,” said District 4 Supervisor Jim Parks, whose district includes Townsend-Winona Road. “After contacting the County’s Public Works Department, we quickly came up with a plan to address the issue. I am excited to see that the needed repair work will begin very soon. I would like to thank Public Works Director Lucinda Andreani for her quick action and attention to this matter.”
Repairs will be conducted between 6 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday with additional weekend work possible. Flaggers, signage and other traffic control devices will be in place as needed to direct vehicles through the construction zone. Drivers can expect delays during the approximate three weeks of construction. The schedule is subject to change based on weather or other factors.
“This project is a good example of how Prop. 403 funds allow the County to address unforeseen road issues quickly and effectively,” said District 1 Supervisor and Board Chairman Art Babbott. “Repairing this section of Townsend-Winona Road now rather than having to rebuild it later is the kind of cost-effective solution that allows the County to conduct ongoing road maintenance and pavement preservation projects to help to extend the service life of roads in our inventory.”
The Townsend-Winona Pavement Project Construction and traffic control information for this project will be available on the “Coconino County Roads” Facebook page and on the project’s web page at www.coconino.az.gov/TownsendWinonaProject.
