Utility relocation occurring through early 2018
Drivers in Prescott should keep an eye out for workers and plan for possible overnight delays on State Route 89 between Deep Well Ranch Road and the SR 89/89A interchange because of utility-relocation work.
SR 89 is open in both directions, but the speed limit has been reduced to 35 mph and the southbound travel lane has been shifted to accommodate work crews on the shoulder of the roadway. A 14-foot vehicle width restriction also is in place in the two-mile work zone. Utility relocation is occurring Sundays through Thursdays from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. through early 2018.
Several utility companies are scheduled to relocate their wires, pipelines and cables in the coming months as the Arizona Department of Transportation prepares for phase two of the project to widen SR 89 between Deep Well Ranch Road and the junction with SR 89A.
