KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) A $5.7 million repaving project along Kingman’s portion of Interstate 40 is set to begin later this month.

Phoenix-based FNF Construction anticipates the repaving work along a 10-mi. (16 km) stretch of I-40 will be started in September.

Arizona Department of Transportation spokeswoman Michele Beggs said the work will take place between midnight and 6 p.m. each weekday on both sides of the highway, though crews will cease at 2 p.m. each Friday and resume at 1 a.m. the following Monday.

The work also includes installing new traffic sensors and upgraded guard rails, replacing pavement markers and installing new rumble strips on the highway’s shoulders.

ADOT said it wants to get the work done before winter sets in.
