The north entrance of Mormon Lake Road is scheduled to be closed from Tuesday, April 9 – Thursday, April 11 while crews replace the cattleguard approximately 0.4 miles north of Rockledge Road.
During this period, motorists will access Mormon Lake Road through the south entrance.
Cattleguard replacement is a preconstruction job for the Central Federal Lands’ Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project, which is scheduled to break ground this summer. Due to a wet winter, the base of the cattleguard is saturated and a detour around the cattleguard is not possible because of the wet conditions on the adjacent shoulders.
To replace the cattleguard, crews must first remove it to “de-water” its base, which includes a significant layer of subterranean clay. After this “de-watering” stage is completed, crews will install large rocks, fabric and slurry as bridging material before adding the new cattleguard.
Coconino County Public Works has deployed electronic message boards at the north entrance of Mormon Lake Road and just north of the township to alert residents of the upcoming closure. Motorists are asked to plan for and expect delays when traveling.
This project is slated to be completed by Thursday afternoon. However, the schedule is subject to change due to weather or other factors.
