Traffic change on Hwy 89 near St. Luke’s
Traffic shift on State Route 89 in Prescott (posted May 4, 2019)
Please, note that the traffic change on State Route 89. Since this week North- and Southbound traffic have no access to Perkins Drive or Ruger Road and left-turn lane restrictions are in place. The access to Ruger Road from the 89 will be closed to traffic through August. (We cannot access Ruger Road anymore from the Highway.)
So, the best way to access St Luke’s is to use the Deep Well Ranch roundabout, then Deep Well Ranch Road, and turn right on Ruger Road to access Shepherds Lane.
Coming from Prescott Valley on 89A, you can still turn right on 89, but there is only one lane, and, at times, the traffic is very heavy. You will have to go to the Deep Well Ranch Road Roundabout to go to St Luke’s. The best option is to take Pioneer Parkway and Willow Creek Road.
Coming from Prescott on the 89, you will have to be patient…
The speed limit in the work zone is reduced to 35 mph. Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel equipment.
