The City of Kingman has a vision to revitalize the Downtown area by improving the walkability and aesthetics for residents, merchants, and visitors while maintaining the historic character of Kingman. This will translate into a safe, attractive, comfortable complete street that connects bicyclists, pedestrians, and vehicular users to several destinations along Beale Street between First Street and Sixth Street with connections to Historic Route 66 (see project area map left).
The proposed project improvements will address infrastructure gaps and deficiencies by upgrading the pedestrian environment with compliant sidewalk, ramps and driveways per Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. The improvements will also include landscaping, wayfinding, street furniture and other site amenities within the existing right-of-way. All these features contribute to the project placemaking resulting in development of a downtown theme and identity.
The City of Kingman has hired an engineering consultant (Wood Environment & Infrastructure) to develop the design concepts and detailed design for the proposed improvements. The project design phase was initiated in May 2020 and will continue into the Fall of 2021. The construction phase will proceed after the design is complete and funding becomes available (see project schedule right (coming soon)).
The initial work will include field survey and data collection.
Opportunities for public comment on the proposed design concepts will be available through the website and other means.
