The City of Prescott is scheduled to begin a pavement repairs project the week of June 3, 2019. The project consists of chip sealing operations, and asphalt milling and paving along State Route 89, from just south of the newly installed roundabout near the Phippen Museum to the Willow Lake Road Roundabout.
Asphalt milling and paving work will occur during nighttime hours, starting Monday, June 3, and continuing through Friday, June 7, from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. To minimize impacts to the traveling public and ensure the safety of construction crews, a full closure of State Route 89 will be required from just south of the newly installed roundabout near the Phippen Museum to the Willow Lake Road Roundabout, to perform this work. Residents who live within the construction zone will be escorted to their homes during construction hours.
Chip sealing operations along State Route 89 will take place from Monday, June 17, to Wednesday, June 19, throughout daytime hours. To avoid any possibility of getting the chip seal material on your car or driveway, please do not enter or exit your driveway while the chip seal application process is underway. Every attempt will be made to maintain access to your residence or business. However, when chip sealing and paving operations are taking place in front of a driveway, there will be an interruption of access required. Please be aware of reduced speeds, rough roads, flagging operations, and turning and lane restrictions during the chip seal process. Motorists should allow for extra time to get through the area, and use an alternate route if possible.
Once complete, this project will extend pavement life and improve the driving surface for motorists well into the future. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2019.
