Town of Prescott Valley to install 41 new crosswalks to enhance pedestrian safety

The Prescott Valley Town Council’s Strategic Plan includes a Quality-of-Life goal to annually install and maintain 100 percent of possible crosswalk connectivity for safe streets. The Town in October 2021 conducted a public meeting to gain input from residents about where crosswalks were needed in the community. Residents also submitted online comments.

 Areas of focus included entertainment districts, schools, parks, and other major pedestrian corridors. Subsequently, the Town hired a  transportation safety engineer, Lee Engineering, to evaluate new crosswalk locations in accordance with established Federal guidelines for pedestrian safety.

Lee’s completed study report, received in early January 2022, identified 41 new locations for Phase I crosswalk markings. During its regular council meeting on April 14, Town Council approved a bid from Hawk Contracting,  LLC, in the amount of $114,715.00 to complete the striping and signage work at each new crosswalk location.  

An interactive map of the approved crosswalks is available on the Town’s website by visiting Public Works and clicking on Roadway Improvements and then Crosswalk Project.  

The Town in its 2022-2023 budget is planning a Phase B to the project which could include 25 more crosswalk locations. Residents are encouraged to suggest new crosswalk locations by contacting  Deputy Public Works Director Ron Pine at 928-759-3035 or rpine@prescottvalley-az.gov/
