Community Benefits

  • Replacing and or abandoning aged and undersized existing water and sewer infrastructure, ranging from 42 - 63 years old, to meet current standards, minimizing the possibility of emergency repairs and associated service outages.
  • Replacing aged and deteriorated asphalt that is no longer maintainable with a chip seal or overlay and improving the streets ride quality and longevity.
  • Replacing defective edge improvements such as existing sidewalk with tripping hazards and curb and gutter that impedes stormwater flow.
  • Reducing required maintenance of existing infrastructure by replacing it with new infrastructure.

Funding Source

The Project is funded by the Road Repair and Street Safety Sales Tax (RR&SS), approved by Flagstaff voters on November 18, 2014 (aka Prop. 406). The RR&SS – Utility Replacements and Overlays funding is generally limited to only improving the existing infrastructure on streets that qualified to receive roadway and utility improvements based on their existing pavement overall condition index (scale of 100 – 0) being at or below 50 and their existing utilities needing repair or replacement due to consistent maintenance or age.

Additional Information

The Project originally included Canyon Terrace with David and Hutcheson as one big project known as the West Flag Improvements Project that was put out for bid in the spring of 2020, but the advertisement was pulled shortly after receiving bids for the larger Project given the economic and revenue uncertainties due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  It was then decided to split the larger project into two separate projects and re-advertise in the winter of 2020 and 2021 in hopes that the effects on revenues for the projects would be known at that time and that at least one, if not both, project(s) would have confirmed funds to move forward into construction.
