"The Sundog Corridor is envisioned as an east-west roadway, parallel to (Highway) 69, that will connect the City of Prescott and the Town of Prescott Valley and provide a desirable connection between the communities," stated the news release.
The Sundog Corridor would relieve congestion on Highway 69 by providing an additional route and access to the residential neighborhoods, the release added.
The study area extends from the Prescott Lakes Parkway roundabout in Prescott to the Sundog Ranch Road intersection at Highway 69 in Prescott Valley - a distance of about three and a half miles.
The goal of the study is to determine a preferred alternative that will deal with right-of-way needs; utility and drainage; and recommendations for intersection locations. It will also look into a possible plan for medians, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and the number of lanes.
