City Construction Projects

Are you curious about what construction projects are taking place throughout Prescott? Well, you've come to the right place! Below you will find a list of construction projects that are currently underway as well as those projects that are still pending.

For information on the status of construction projects please call the City of Prescott Public Works Department at 928-777-1130.

Completed Projects

During 2010, the City contracted with a professional engineering firm to complete the Sundog Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and Airport Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) Capacity and Technology Master Plans. The study revealed that wastewater BOD and TSS strength at both treatment plants have nearly tripled since the most recent upgrade (1998) lowering the treatment capacity for the Airport WRF to 1.2 MGD. Currently, average daily flows to the plant are 1.1 MGD; therefore plant expansion is necessary to handle committed capacities and projected growth in the area. The treatment capacity recommended for the next phase of the Airport WRF was established at 3.75 MGD. Three phases are recommended from the Master Plan with a total recommended build-out capacity of 9.6 or 15 MGD (dependant on the City's decision for one centralized treatment plant in the future).

The City has completed contracts with Water Works Engineers for the design of the expansion project and PCL/Fann Environmental Joint Venture as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR). The final design plans were completed in early Fall of 2012. The CMAR contract for construction was awarded by City Council on October 23, 2012 and the notice to proceed for construction was given on November 12, 2012.

During the weeks of November 26th through December 14th, the subcontractor Fann Contracting be graded the site. Truck traffic will be minimal with equipment deliveries to the project.

The construction phase of the project will last approximately 2 year.

Park Avenue - The Park Avenue road reconstruction project, from Canyon Springs Road to Gurley Street will include water, sewer, and roadway improvements. The project design and specifications are currently being completed.

Design plans have been provided to APS, CenturyLink, and CableOne and approved for construction. The utility relocations began the week of August 12th. Construction of new underground utilities and pole relocations should take 2 months to complete contingent upon soil and weather conditions encountered during construction.

In coming months, during utility relocation work, acquisition of limited but necessary right-of-way for the project will continue. Property appraisals have been completed, meetings will be scheduled with individual property owners as necessary to provide information in this regard and to begin negotiations for the needed right-of-way.

The City will advertise the construction project once the relocation of third-party utilities and acquisition of rights-of-way are completed.

On October 10, 2012 a Flood Study and design project was awarded to JE Fuller Hydrology and Geomorphology for the study of Willow Creek Wash. Based on the flood study, a water main relocation and scour protection plan was developed for the three water mains crossing Willow Creek at approximately 1000 feet downstream of Clearwater Drive.

City staff has reviewed the 100% plans and forwarded comments back to the design engineer. Prior to having the engineer finalize the design, the City will be bidding a design bid for a water stop at two locations in the project area so water valves can be installed. The water line stops are required on the 14-inch steel concrete lined water lined installed in 1948. Staff is currently reviewing proposals for the water line stops and expects to request price proposals by the beginning of September.

Final plans and advertisement for the water line replacement project are expected after the water valves have been installed.

Any questions or comments regarding the project may be emailed to the project Manager, Jeff Low at
