ADOT White Spar Rd Improvements
By Jim Knaup
A public meeting about proposed Highway 89 / White Spar Road improvements is scheduled for Wednesday Feb. 3rd from 5 to 7:00PM at the Prescott Landmark Church 1206 White Spar Rd.
     This action is a result of a Federal Highway Administration Transportation Enhancements Grant submitted by our friends at Prescott Alternative Transportation (PAT). The project will run from Copper Basin Rd. To Peterson Lane (not quite to Haisley), and the improvements will include:

•    Widen and repave road between Copper Basin and Peterson, and install bike lanes and sidewalks that will improve movement for cyclists and pedestrians

•    Add continuous left turn lane and bike lanes between Cheery St. And Copper Basin.

•    Install curb and gutter, which defines the roadway, makes driveways safer and more visible, and improves drainage.

•    Add retaining walls to stabilize the road from the edges.

•    Install new commercial and residential driveways, and other drainage improvements

Representatives of ADOT will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the project with the community. The project is expected to take four months and start in early 2011.

Please consider coming out to learn about this project that will beautify the South entrance to our town, as well as make the area safer and more convenient for all users of our transportation system... And let them know you support projects that help make this a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly community.

This is another example of the good work done by the folks at PAT Let them know you appreciate their efforts too.

IMBA Comes to Prescott
As many of us know the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) stopped though Prescott last week in order to explain their concepts of "Ride Centers,"  and to clarify what they can do in the aspects of advocacy and trail building.   Considering that, since then, Raven Singletrack has taken initiative to spearhead movements in order to further progress toward IMBA goals, it is in your interest to read what Raven Singletrack has to say about this event and their future goals.  Check out Raven Singletrack's release at
