City Construction Projects

Are you curious about what construction projects are taking place throughout Prescott? Well, you've come to the right place! Below you will find a list of construction projects that are currently underway as well as those projects that are still pending.

For information on the status of construction projects please call the City of Prescott Public Works Department at 928-777-1130.

Projects Currently Under Construction

During 2010, the City contracted with a professional engineering firm to complete the Sundog Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and Airport Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) Capacity and Technology Master Plans. The study revealed that wastewater BOD and TSS strength at both treatment plants have nearly tripled since the most recent upgrade (1998) lowering the treatment capacity for the Airport WRF to 1.2 MGD. Currently, average daily flows to the plant are 1.1 MGD; therefore plant expansion is necessary to handle committed capacities and projected growth in the area. The treatment capacity recommended for the next phase of the Airport WRF was established at 3.75 MGD. Three phases are recommended from the Master Plan with a total recommended build-out capacity of 9.6 or 15 MGD (dependant on the City's decision for one centralized treatment plant in the future).

The City has completed contracts with Water Works Engineers for the design of the expansion project and PCL/Fann Environmental Joint Venture as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR). The final design plans were completed in early Fall of 2012. The CMAR contract for construction was awarded by City Council on October 23, 2012 and the notice to proceed for construction was given on November 12, 2012.

During the weeks of November 26th through December 14th, the subcontractor Fann Contracting be graded the site. Truck traffic will be minimal with equipment deliveries to the project.

The construction phase of the project will last approximately 2 year.

This project consists of equipping the well with a new pump house, water transmission main to tie into the new system, and construction of an arsenic treatment plant. The project is located north of the Prescott Airport in ranch land and will have very little impact on the public throughout the duration of construction.

Fann Environmental was the low bidder on this project and has started construction of the access road on November 11th. The access road ties into Ruger Road north of the Ruger manufacturing facility and then crosses to the south side of Bottleneck Wash. Heavy equipment may be encountered on Ruger Road as it enters the construction site.

In March, 2013, the City Council approved code changes that give the City discretion to replace or rebuild sidewalks subject to availability of funds in any given year. The Council has since then approved an annual budget for sidewalk repairs.

City staff has conducted a sidewalks condition assessment in the downtown area of the city and is in the process of developing engineered plans for repairs and replacement of dilapidated sidewalks.

Major soil buttress construction, re-construction of River Trail Road and both on-site and off-site landscape/irrigation operations have been completed with 80% landscape vegetation growth and coverage.

Minor items remain with the replacement of a few damaged concrete driveway panels at the rear of the building along with re-defining the storm water detention pond, also at the southeast corner on State Land. Only minor punch list items will remain.

At Holiday Drive/ADOT right of way, the extension of the box culvert is complete with the exception of utility relocations that are continuing with the expected completion in the next two to three weeks. Afterwards, backfill of the wash, removal of the temporary retaining wall and re-paving of the asphalt in the intersection will complete that portion of Lowes requirements. At that time, it is hopeful that the contractors will be substantially complete and will be signed off with only on-call warranty work remaining on an as needed basis.
