Crews have broken ground on a $9.5 million project to improve Mormon Lake Road.
The Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project includes the mill, overlay and widening of the entire 9.8 miles of roadway, which is located about 30 miles southeast of Flagstaff along the western shore of Mormon Lake.
InterMountain West Civil Constructors, Inc. is working daylight hours, Monday through Thursday with some weekend work possible. Crews started at the south entrance of Mormon Lake Road and are working northwards through the townsite to just north of the rodeo grounds.
The project is expected to be completed by this fall. However, this is subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen conditions.
The north entrance of Mormon Lake Road will remain open during this phase, and the south entrance of Mormon Lake Road will remain open during construction with flaggers, signage and other traffic controls to guide vehicles through the work zone. Drivers can expect delays of up to 30 minutes at the south entrance during this period.
Once the rodeo grounds are reached, the north entrance of Mormon Lake Road may be closed so that the contractor can more effectively work on the northern segment of the project. This closure would be necessary to complete paving along the entire construction corridor before temperatures decline significantly during the late summer and early fall. If the north entrance is closed, then all traffic to and from Mormon Lake Road will need to use the south entrance.
The Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project is funded by a Federal Land Access Program (FLAP) grant from the Federal Highway Administration’s Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFL), which was awarded to the County in summer 2017. The County’s match of approximately $5.5 million for this project is funded by Proposition 403, the County’s Road Maintenance Sales Tax.
