Viewpoint/Parkview Drive gets additional new crosswalk after 41 planned for Town
The Viewpoint/Parkview intersection as of Tuesday, May 17, received one of 42 new crosswalks to be installed in the Town. This crosswalk was an addition to an original list of 41 new sites. 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. Areas of focus include entertainment districts, schools, parks, and other major pedestrian corridors. Transportation safety engineer Lee Engineering evaluated the new crosswalk locations in accordance with established Federal guidelines for pedestrian safety, and Hawk Contracting, LLC is completing the work.
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 email@example.com/
