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.

Projects in Design Phase

The project replacement of approximately 15,600 Lineal Feet (LF) of 24-inch to 48-inch gravity sewer trunk and branch mains near the Airport in the north Prescott area. The trunk main design will begin at the Airport Water Reclamation Facility and will run southerly to the Northern edge of the Granite Dells. (See Vicinity Map below).

This project will research alternative alignments while replacing the trunk main through the Airpark Industrial Park, under the State Route 89A /Larry Caldwell Interchange, including connections to the existing trunk main in State Route 89 at the north end of Granite Dells.

Results of the Sewer Model Report and Centralization Analysis, determined that the existing Airport Trunk Main needs to be upsized for current flow demands and for the centralized build out scenario. This project is the 5th of 10 projects that will complete centralization of the Wastewater Treatment process.

Centralization, when completed will combine all wastewater treatment processes at the Airport Water Reclamation Facility and decommission the Sundog Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The Airport Trunk Main, Phase 1 project was completed through the Walden Ranch Subdivision based on a cooperative agreement with Walden Ranch, in July 2017.

The project is currently under design and has been awarded to Kimley-Horn.

The project consists of various drainage improvements associated with street drainage and neighborhood complaints regarding drainage. The following projects are under design: -Alarcon Alley #1 between Aubrey St. south to Lereaux St. - Project is to address drainage and sediment concerns associated with the alley. -Robinson Drive Storm Drain off Hill Crest Lane. Drainage in the alley currently ponds for months and one house is known to flood in the area. A new storm drain is being design to convey drainage into the Robinson Drive storm drain system. The alleys in the area will be paved with the project. -915 Country Club Drive - Re-design the driveway (which has been elevated over the years with pavement overlays) and drainage along the side of the road. -Divinity Circle - Remove and repave the cul-de-sac. The road is failing and drainage is currently ponding in the road during storm events. -1816 Boardwalk Avenue - reinstall scupper drain to low point of the road. Currently, the scupper drain is not in the low point of the road and drainage jumps the curbing causing erosion damage near a culvert the City maintains. -5587 Goldenrod Way - Repair erosion hazard and re-install an outlet structure that has been undermined.
-Samaritan Way between Lakeview Road and Magnolia Lane -Grated drains are failing along the side of the road and the road in the area is deteriorating. The project will reinstall new grated drains and remove poor pavement sections before repaving the road. -Thumb Butte Road between 1803 and 1717 -Add curbing along the south side of the road, to prevent drainage from flooding houses and yards.

The project is currently at 90% design and is anticipated to start construction in the Spring. Based on the overall cost estimate not all of the projects being design above will be constructed within the 2018 budget.

The project is to design the upgrade to the existing Prescott Resort Pump Station that feeds Pressure Zone 56 from 740 gallons per minute to 1750 gallons per minute. The project has been proposed based on the City Water Distribution Model calling for a new Zone 56 reservoir to be installed at a higher elevation than the existing Prescott Canyon Reservoir with additional capacity. Per the water model master plan, the new Zone 56 reservoir and upgraded Prescott Resort Pump Station will provide required pressures, residential/commercial fire flows to the entire Zone 56 area, and will enhance pressures to the other surrounding water system zones.

The design project was awarded to Kelley-Wise Engineering and the pump station design has been completed. The project has experienced a delay in obtaining needed easements with the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe, which was partially due to impact fees negotiations. Based on updated discussions, the project will include upsizing the water line from the pump station to Prescott Resort to provide adequate fire flows. Project coordination between the Yavapai Indian Tribe - Prescott Resort and Casino will be required to limit any disruptions to the facility.
Staff is anticipating the project going out to bid for construction this winter, after all required easements have been obtained.

Questions regarding the project should be addressed to the City Project Manager, Jeff Low at (928) 777-1643 or email to jeff.low@prescott-az.gov.
