FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The state and the city of Flagstaff are teaming up on a federally funded street-improvement project aimed at reducing congestion in the northern Arizona city’s downtown.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the city will provide land for two new right-turn lanes on North Humphreys Street.

That street is also U.S. 180 and part of the main route between Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon.

One of the new lanes will be on southbound North Humphreys Street at the intersection with Historic Route 66. The other new lane will be on northbound North Humphreys Street at West Aspen Avenue at the first intersection north of Historic Route 66.

According to ADOT, design work is set to begin in the 2016-2017 fiscal year and construction will start several years later.
