A first-time visit to Flagstaff’s spacious new Arizona Department of Transportation office might take motorists by surprise. There are 14 service windows and lines that move. More impressive is the back story, a public-private partnership and adaptive reuse project that is creating much-needed office space for ADOT, benefits to Harkins Theater, which moved to the town’s east side, new life for the Flagstaff Mall and The Marketplace, and a long-awaited road alignment at the gateway to the city.
On Feb. 14, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, local elected officials and community and business leaders celebrated the grand opening of the ADOT building, which now houses the Motor Vehicle Division in the former Harkins Theater on Woodlands Village Blvd., and is one piece of a complicated economic development puzzle.
