City art and beautification staff are busy not only creating new projects, but also taking care of the collection we already have! This clock downtown, donated to the city decades ago, is in need of repair. In the meantime, there is colorful Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)-inspired clock face to greet the community!
Twenty-two hanging flower baskets now grace Historic Downtown, brimming with climate-appropriate flowers. Concentrated on downtown streets including Aspen, San Francisco, and Leroux, these baskets complement the new pollinator garden located in Heritage Square. These projects bring color and cheer to the Flagstaff community while also providing love to both pollinators and local businesses!
The Fourth Street bridge over I-40 is currently being built through a joint City of Flagstaff and Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) project. Enhancements include the treatment of supports to look like natural stone, as well as chevron and pinecone motifs on the bridge barrier. These elements will welcome both visitors and locals as they drive along the interstate, and are expected to be complete in the fall of 2020.
Beginning on the east side of town near the I-40 Walnut Canyon exit and continuing to Flagstaff Ranch Road on the west, the 15-plus miles of Route 66 within Flagstaff has several types of commemorative monuments and placemaking pieces.
These include Route 66 signage, Walk this Talk Pedestrian Route and Experience, Visitor Center tarmac painting and several murals line the streetscape. Future placemaking projects along Route 66 are anticipated, as both locals and visitors continue to celebrate this important historic road through Flagstaff.
