Reconstruction work continues on Mount Vernon/Senator Highway
Retaining wall, concrete, and utility upgrade work will continue next week on the City of Prescott's reconstruction of Mount Vernon Avenue/Senator Highway.
A news release from the city reports that crews will continue forming and installing steel reinforcement and retaining walls along Senator Highway throughout the week. While the work will occur largely off the roadway, motorists should be aware of rough road conditions, reduced speeds, lane restrictions, and possible flagging operations.
Construction also will begin on new sidewalks, as well as curb and gutter, from East Goodwin to Oak Street. The news release noted that South Mount Vernon is closed to traffic from East Gurley to Oak Street, with local access at East Goodwin Street. Residents may access South Mount Vernon from East Goodwin and Oak Street.
Drivers should be aware of changing lane configurations, flagging operations, and traffic stops along the project corridor.
In addition, crews will continue to excavate and install water and sewer lines from Oak Street to the end of South Mount Vernon Avenue throughout the week. Water services are being installed from East Goodwin to East Carleton. Some waterline replacement is under way on Senator Highway near Summit Pointe.
Brief water service interruptions may occur, and the city will notify residents in advance, according to the news release.
All of the work will take place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
