<< BACK || THE PRESCOTT NORTH AREA TODAY
The Prescott North roadway network is dominated by SR 89 and SR 89A. SR 89 connects is a north-south route connecting to Chino Valley on the north edge of the planning area and to the City of Prescott on the south. SR 89A (Pioneer Parkway) connects east west across the bottom of the planning area to Prescott Valley on the east and to Iron Springs Road, which skirts the planning area on the west. Arterial roadways include Willow Creek Road, connecting downtown Prescott through the developing Deep Well Ranch to S.R. 89 at the south edge of the Prescott Municipal Airport. Collector roads include Larry Caldwell Road, Perkins Drive, Deep Well Ranch Road, and Ruger Road. These roads generally serve airport, industrial areas adjacent to it, and the Antelope Hills and Deep Well Ranch developments. Local streets provide access to individual homes and businesses.
Walking, biking and equestrian travel is served with local sidewalks and trails. The Pea Vine Trail regional trail runs north/south along the abandoned Pea Vine railroad right of way from near Watson Lake north to southeast of the airport. The trail crosses under 89A west of Granite Creek Parkway and is planned to extend north. In general, and with the exception of the Pea Vine Trail underpass, pedestrian, bicycle, and equestrian crossings are limited and at grade within the planning area.
The 2045 Regional Transportation Plan prepared for Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO) in 2020 (See combined RTP map) anticipates limited roadways into Prescott North with the exception of a planned extension of Parkview Drive from Prescott Valley to the planned Prescott Municipal Airport loop road.
While specific data is not available for Prescott North, more people travel into Prescott for work than commute out. As North Area employment and housing continues to grow and remain an economic hub within the county, this trend is anticipated to continue.
