The City of Kingman is pleased to announce that the Rancho Santa Fe Transportation Hub Development Agreement has been signed by KDP Manager, LLC and the City of Kingman. The next steps are for KDP Manager, LLC to file an irrevocable letter of credit, then the city will request the $ 20 million that state lawmakers have approved for the project. Once the funding is complete, the city will submit the completed transportation junctions to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) for review. After ADOT has completed the plan review, the project is put out to tender.
Kingman Mayor Jen Miles said, “I’m really excited to announce that KDP Manager, LLC and the City of Kingman have signed the Rancho Santa Fe (TI) Transportation Hub Development Agreement. While there are still a number of steps to be taken before the groundbreaking ceremony, this agreement is the cornerstone of moving forward with the peace of mind that all parties to the agreement are working together and in harmony. This agreement has been made possible through the action and advocacy of many people and organizations for many years. Many of these contributions will be highlighted as the TI progresses. Right now, it’s just important to thank all of the current and past stakeholders and leaders who have continuously supported and engaged this project and the vision it represents. We know this infrastructure development positions our city for a promising, prosperous future that uses our important regional location and assets to advance our transportation, distribution and industrial sectors. “
Kingman City Manager Ron Foggin said, “We are excited to be moving forward on this important project for the community and look forward to the next steps to keep Rancho Santa Fe under construction in the New Year.”
The City of Kingman has allocated a budget of $ 16.7 million to cover their share of the project.
For more than forty years, the Rancho Santa Fe (formerly known as Rattlesnake Wash) hub has been considered critical transportation infrastructure needed to increase the economic vitality of northwest Arizona. The intersection and link roads will connect the Kingman City Airport and Industrial Park to I-40 and the future commercial corridor I-11.
