Road Work

Excavation continues at new water tank site
PRESCOTT - Preliminary work is under way at the site of the City of Prescott's new Zone 27 water tank on Skyline Drive. A news release from the city reported that crews will continue excavating the site for several weeks. The site is west of the existing Skyline Drive-area tank. This week's work hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. While the work will occur largely off the road, drivers should remain aware of reduced speeds, lane restrictions, and possible flagging operations. Significant truck traffic will continue to and from the work site along Skyline Drive, Forest Hills Road, Meadowbrook Road, Forest Meadows Drive, Sherwood Drive, Thumb Butte Road, and Gurley Street.
Work continues on Senator Highway, Mount Vernon Ave.
PRESCOTT - As the Senator Highway paving project nears completion, crews will continue to work this week on lane striping, sidewalk construction, drainage improvements, handrail and guardrail installation, and landscaping. A news release from the City of Prescott reported that work would take place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and would lead to traffic delays and sporadic closure of Senator Highway between Nathan Lane and South Mount Vernon Avenue. As a part of the project, crews also will continue landscaping restoration work along South Mount Vernon Avenue and Senator Highway. Workers will contact affected residents throughout the duration of the landscaping project, according to the news release. While the landscaping work will occur largely off the road, drivers should be aware of possible traffic impacts, such as reduced speeds, lane restrictions, and possible flagging operations. The city is urging drivers to allow additional time travel time through the project corridor.
ADOT plans night work on I-17 at Cordes Junction
A number of late-night closures and restrictions will be in effect (weather permitting) on Interstate 17 at Cordes Junction this week as crews work on new bridges and remove the old Cordes Lakes Road bridge. A news release from the Arizona Department of Transportation reported that traffic impacts on Monday and Tuesday nights will include: • Drivers on northbound I-17 will be shifted through a detour to Stagecoach Road and then to the new Arcosanti traffic interchange to continue northbound on I-17 between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. • Drivers on southbound I-17 will be shifted through a detour over the Arcosanti bridge to the Highway 69 on-ramp back onto southbound I-17 between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Crews plan no work for the Thanksgiving holiday, Wednesday through Saturday, and will resume work on Sunday night, Nov. 25. The work is part of a $50 million project to modernize the I-17/Highway 69 interchange. The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signs, according to the news release. ADOT is advising drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with reduced speed limits, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
