City contractors completed construction at three major intersections on Lake Havasu Avenue ahead of schedule, but the job isn’t finished yet.
Stop lights at the intersections of Lake Havasu Avenue and Swanson Avenue, McCulloch Boulevard and Mesquite Boulevard have flickered red for much of this year, forcing traffic to a stop-and-go pace through the heart of Lake Havasu City. According to City Manager Jess Knudson, however, those lights are expected to resume normal function by the end of next week.
Knudson says that pavement and utility projects for the intersections was completed May 24, in advance of the Memorial Day holiday. Work continues, however, as the city installs and improves decorative crosswalks at each intersection.
“The crosswalks are completed, but we are working with the contractor to improve the look of the crosswalks,” Knudson said Wednesday.
The completion of crosswalks at each intersection will be the last step in a renovation project that began early this year. To date, the project has included replacement of utility infrastructure beneath the roadway, repaving and new medians on London Bridge Road.
