Work Continues on Multi-Use Pathways
In meeting the goal of providing more pedestrian trails, the Town was awarded a $1 million Transportation Equity Act grant for a trail from Starlight Drive to Great Western Drive from the Arizona Department of Transportation. Prescott Valley also received a second grant for the PV Pipeline Phase II Trail from Manley Drive to Long Mesa Drive in the amount of $429,000.
The Town’s multi-use pathways connect facilities that generate high activity to include schools, parks and government buildings. The completed multi-use pathways are ADA compliant with amenities that include landscaping, bike racks and pedestrian rest areas.
Once grant approval is received, actual multi-use pathways take about two years for completion, which includes a one-year design phase and a one-year construction phase.
Other transportation enhancement projects within the Town include the Highway 69 Multi-Use Path from Navajo Road to Glassford Hill Road and the Central Core Multi-Use Path.
The Highway 69 Project from Prescott East Highway to Stoneridge Drive is progressing per schedule. This project will widen the highway to six lanes with a paved median. This project will help accommodate the Crossroads retail complex and include drainage and signal improvements.
Central Core Multi-Use Path Now Open!
One of the best services a community can provide is miles of trails for walking, bicycling, jogging and other safe, traffic-free activities. Now the Central Core Multi-Use Path is open to citizens.
This latest pathway features a smooth, asphalt overlay and some sections include amenities such as bench seating and landscaping. Phase One of the project runs from Florentine Road to Lakeshore Drive and from Lakeshore to Mountain Valley Park.
Cost: $1.1 million – funding from a Transportation Enhancement grant with matching funds.
Phase Two of the project runs to Lakeshore Drive from Victor Road to Civic Circle.
Funding for this project was provided by a Transportation Enhancement grant.
The Town of Prescott Valley maintains a Pedestrian/Bicycle System Master Plan and the map is available on the Town’s Website at www.pvaz.net.
