How about the thousands of residents that live on the dirt roads, that the county refuses to maintain. When many of these roads become muddy emergency vehicles can't get through and the streets don't even have signs. We all pay taxes and wonder why some less traved roads are paved and others are not. West Road 2 north, in Chino Valley, has a mud bog that's impassable for months at a time. Windmill has many homes and connecting streets yet none of them are maintained.

The Town of Prescott Valley's portion of SR 69 is awful to drive through. It takes too long to go a very short distance. Less lights (resulting in the vacation of certain street access to SR 69) and another lane in each direction may help to improve circulation, in addition to limiting left hand turns from Fain Road all the way up to the SR 69/89 split in Prescott.

There are an increasing number of spots were there are big ruts, cracks and even chunks of pavement completely missing on 69, 89, and 89A.

We really need a local, perhaps quad city, bus system. I have visited 2 different towns this year with local bus systems and they are very popular. Prices ranged from $1 to $7 for single rides around the area. It would be a great investment of public funds for our area.

I would like to see more attention paid to creating safe walking and bicycling paths or lanes throughout Prescott. Iron Springs Road has unconnected walk ways along it, creating unsafe conditions for pedestrians. The road is not wide enough to provide safety for cyclists. Rather than widening roads, more focus should be placed on alternative forms of transportation and creating safety on the streets for ALL users. Drivers and cyclists need education about how to share the road safely.

First, thank you for creating this website and for encouraging discussion on topics other than motor vehicles. At least one third of our quad-city residents do not own a car and others cannot afford the cost of driving their car. We need choices. We need streets that invite other modes of transport. I agree with the comments regarding the need for an effective, affordable bus system (daily fixed-route, starting early in the morning and ending after hours) and connecting, high-quality bicycle and pedestrian ways. Avoid widening roads to accomplish this. Use the same corridors, same materials, same budgets, just please shape our roads for people rather than moving more cars faster. An excellent resource for the latest roadway designs that follow this principle is the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) (website: nacto.org). They are led by your peers - transportation officials in cities large and small around the country. Please connect with them and learn the latest about completing our streets for people.

Can we get PVPD to patrol Hondo, between Long Mesa and Ranger?

There is a valley along that road where residents and even the school bus drivers speed up and down both hills, resulting in accidents and property damage.

The transit system has helped many people get around the tri-city area. More busses and extended routes are needed. Folks need to have a car to get back and forth to work or live within walking distance. Prescott Valley community needs service from 69 to 89A.

With all the homes being built out Glassford Hill Road (and even more planned) how will 69, 89A or even Glassford Hill Road accommodate the increase in vehicles? There are already too many accidents on GLassford and 69.

Suggest to redo Hwy 69 in Prescott Valley in concrete from Sundog Ranch Rd eastbound to Fain Rd. Concrete lasts longer than asphalt, more prone to wear and tear and is more environmentally friendly. Chip/seal wears out too quickly and isn't smooth.

Would like to see Hwy 69 converted into an actual freeway in Prescott Valley, via below grade. Stoneridge, Glassford Hill Rd, Lake Valley Rd, Windsong, Robert Rd, and Navajo Rd intersections would be converted to diamond bridges with on/off ramps that go over Hwy 69. That would eliminate all the intersection lights and redirect traffic off Hwy 69.

With Prescott Valley and Prescott population combine, adds almost 100k people, there needs to be public bus transportation. Not everybody can afford a car/truck. Would like to see something called 'Yavapai Metro Transit' that serves Cordes Lakes, Mayer, Dewey-Humboldt, PV, Prescott and Chino Valley. Similar cities in population such as Flagstaff and Grand Junction, CO have bus transit that works for their residents.
