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

The project was awarded to Rural Electric on August 18, 2015 with a notice to proceed given on August 24, 2015. The project includes demolition of the existing 1940's electrical vault and removal of existing electrical equipment; construction of a new electrical vault, airfield electrical equipment, back-up generator, including all underground conduit, conductor and cable; a new medium intensity taxiway lighting edge lights and lighted signs along Taxiway E; removal and replacement of existing segmented circle and lighted windcone; and new airport lighting and monitoring control system. Additional work includes extending three phase power from Ruger Road and the Well #3 site to the new electrical vault.

Background The goal of the PRC Electrical Improvements project is to replace and/or upgrade failing electrical infrastructure and equipment to increase operational safety at the Prescott Municipal Airport. This project will include the following major components: �âïÿý�â New Electrical Vault and Emergency Back-Up Generator �âïÿý�â New Medium Intensity Taxiway Lighting (MITL) edge lights and lighted signs along Taxiway E �âïÿý�â New Segmented Circle with Lighted Windcone �âïÿý�â New Airport Lighting and Monitoring Control System (ALMCS)

New Electrical Vault and Generator The existing airfield electrical vault and generator have reached the end of their useful service lives and require replacement. Additionally, the existing location of the electrical vault and generator is not conducive or beneficial for the existing airfield electrical infrastructure and circuit configuration. The airport has designated a new location that would be more beneficial for the current electrical infrastructure and circuit configuration. The new location has also taken into consideration future development alternatives that the City and Airport are currently considering. These potential development projects are identified in the current airport Master Plan.

This project includes a new approximate 1,400 Square Foot (SF) electrical vault to include the equipment required to power and control the existing electrical infrastructure as well as the equipment that will be required in future electrical projects. New electrical equipment will be included to replace existing equipment that is also outdated, including Airfield Lighting and Control Monitoring System (ALCMS), Constant Current Regulators, (CCR), etc. The new electrical vault will also include an approximate 80 SF control room.

Taxiway E Lighting and Signage The existing Taxiway E does not currently have edge lighting or lighted signage. The FAA submitted a letter to the City of Prescott, (as a follow-up to a April 15, 2009 Inspection Letter of Certification from Patrick Lammerding), stating that any taxiway parallel to a runway used for air carrier services is required to have edge lighting and lighted signage according to current FAA regulations and standards (FAA AC 150/5340-30G). As the crosswind Runway 12-30 occasionally receives operations from Great Lakes airlines, Taxiway E is in need of receiving electrical upgrades to bring it into compliance with standards.

This project will include new Medium Intensity Taxiway Edge Lighting (MITL) and lighted signage. The taxiway edge lighting system design will include at a minimum, new LED taxiway edge lights, isolation transformers, 5kV cable, and new lighted airfield signage.

Segmented Circle with Lighted Windcone The FAA issued a Letter of Correction on May 30, 2014 in which the existing Segmented Circle was not demonstrating the existing aircraft traffic patterns and the existing grades within the segmented circle area were out of compliance. Furthermore, the existing lighted windcone has reached the end of its useful service life and is in need of replacement. This project will provide a new segmented circle in compliance with the existing traffic patterns and required grading. A new lighted windcone will also be included.

The project was completed in early 2016.

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.

The project was completed in Fall 2015.

This project consists of equipping the well with a new pump house, water transmission main to tie into the new system, and construction of an arsenic treatment plant. The project is located north of the Prescott Airport in ranch land and will have very little impact on the public throughout the duration of construction.

The project is scheduled to be completed in March 2016.

The Blackhawk Subdivision Drainage Improvements Project generally consists of topographic survey of selected streets, utilities investigations, geotechnical evaluations, and the preparation of plans, specifications, and engineering construction estimates to construct surface channels and subsurface storm drainage system along S. Lakeview Drive, Golden Bear Drive, and Golden Hawk Drive in the Blackhawk Subdivision.

The project was completed in Fall 2015.

The City of Prescott was awarded a Community Development Block Grant for the design of street reconstruction of Short and Meany Streets. These streets were reconstructed with new 3-inch asphalt pavement and curbing. The engineering design for the project was completed by Kelley-Wise Engineering. Based on neighborhood input, the project also included removal of individual mailboxes along the street and the installation of a cluster mailbox unit.

This project is now complete. See attached project update for details.
