Two major Prescott Valley road projects will begin construction this spring.
The Town of Prescott Valley has delayed two major projects until Spring 2023 because of construction costs, labor shortages and supply chain issues.
The Glassford Hill Road resurfacing project, which will improve the road surface from Highway 69 to Panther Path, and the Viewpoint Drive improvement project, which will improve Viewpoint between Long Look and Manley, will begin this Spring, and are scheduled for completion by Fall 2023.
The delay will allow time for construction costs to decline, and the Town will be able to better manage resources by constructing the projects over two budget years. Current construction conditions have costs exceeding the existing budget for both projects.
“We are still in the planning/development phase and our goal is to go out to bid in February or March. We’re looking at April to start construction,” said Deputy Public Works Director Ron Pine.
The Town will continue to patch Glassford Hill Road as needed until construction can take place.
