The projected $25 million repair is already on the fast track. Design on the repair began in late August and ADOT is meeting with potential contractors this fall. ADOT’s goal is to start construction by mid-2014, if extensive environmental and right-of-way clearances are finalized.
I guess my 'fast track' and their 'fast track' work on different time clocks! However, to be fair, it sounds like they may try to reroute the road to avoid this relatively unstable piece of land, and I guess that would require a lot of work to obtain the right of way.
