The City of Prescott and their contractor, Fann Contracting, are working on Phase 1 of the Penn Avenue/Eastwood Drive Improvements Project. Phase 1 of the project consists of water, sewer and storm drainage improvements along South Penn Avenue, from East Gurley Street to just south of the Hillcrest Drive/Eastwood Drive intersection. Additional improvements include the construction of a new Regional Stormwater Detention Basin (as shown in the map below), as well as new curb, gutter, asphalt pavement and trailhead improvements along the project corridor.
Construction of improvements within Phase 1 are scheduled to be complete in early 2023. Following the completion of work in Phase 1, crews will begin work within Phase 2. A follow-up notification will be distributed prior to construction activities commencing in Phase 2 of the project.
