Engineers Dava and Associates has completed design for the Prescott Valley Viewpoint Drive Connector Project and the Town has announced construction is scheduled to begin this month.
Roadway improvements for this project will expand the intersection of Manley Dr. and extend Viewpoint Dr. to Roundup Dr. A connection to the new roadway will be provided at Long Mesa Dr.
The new connector is expected to be the Town’s third north/south traffic artery, relieving some of the traffic congestion on Robert and Glassford Hill roads. After the connector is complete, the Town has plans to continue the widening of Robert Rd. north of Manley Dr. as funding becomes available.
The Town anticipates that Viewpoint Dr., at complete buildout to accommodate future growth, will mirror Glassford Hill Rd. with five lanes, median trees, and a multi-use pathway.
The project is funded by the Town’s third cent sales tax for roadway improvements. Town Council awarded the bid for construction to Earth Resources Corporation in the amount of $7.7 million. Council approved an additional amount of $608,000 to Dava & Associates for services during construction.
The Viewpoint Dr. Corridor project will last approximately nine months with an approximate completion date of December 2020. Temporary delays and detours may be experienced. Please use caution if traveling in the area.
