Work continues on Mt. Vernon, Senator Highway project
PRESCOTT - Throughout the coming week, crews will be installing utility adjustments and temporary striping, and will begin landscape restoration on South Mount Vernon.
A news release from the City of Prescott reported that the work is winding down on the Mount Vernon section of the project, while it continues to move forward on Senator Highway.
On Mount Vernon, the remaining work will require lane restrictions, delays, reduced speeds, changing lane configurations, and possible flagging operations. The city is encouraging drivers to use alternate routes.
On Senator Highway, crews will grade the road in advance of new curb construction and placement of aggregate base course.
Construction of retaining walls along Senator Highway is now complete, and crews will continue backfilling the retaining walls.
Crews also are installing new waterline on Senator Highway at Haisley Road and Nathan Lane. In addition, new storm drains and catch basins are still under construction on Senator Highway at Nathan Lane.
The city expects no utility service interruptions at this time.
Drivers may encounter long delays and sporadic closure of Senator Highway between Nathan Lane and South Mount Vernon Street. The city is urging drivers to allow additional travel time through the project and be aware of lane restrictions, flagging operations, and traffic stops.
The work will take place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
