PRESCOTT - The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin construction next week on a new roundabout at the intersection of State Route 89 and Perkinsville Road in Chino Valley.
Starting on Monday, Feb. 1 crews will begin shoulder work and place temporary fencing through the work zone. Drivers should be aware of increased truck traffic at the intersection, weather dependent. The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage.
ADOT advises drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel. This $1.5 million project consists of a new roundabout at the intersection of SR 89 and Perkinsville Road between mileposts 328 and 329.
Additional work includes removal and replacement of existing pavement, drainage improvements, new pavement markings and lighting.This project is expected to be complete by September.
