Pedestrian Scramble – September 10th

The City of Prescott public works department will begin a trial of a new pedestrian scramble cross walk configuration at the corner of Gurley and Montezuma beginning on Tuesday, September 10th. 

he configuration is called a pedestrian phase, and is a type of traffic operation that temporarily stops all vehicular movement, thereby allowing pedestrians to cross an intersection in every direction, including diagonally, at the same time.

The scramble trial is planned to take place for approximately 2 weeks, and will inform a future decision towards potential traffic control changes.

There will be temporary striping of the intersection, and signs indicating the new configuration.  Staff will be monitoring the operation of the trial to evaluate acceptable operation and implement minor adjustments as needed.

Motorists are advised to approach the intersection with caution, and pay extra attention to crossing pedestrians.
