Due to public safety concerns, ADOT crews will be installing protective fencing to Midgley Bridge near Sedona. ADOT spokesman Ryan Harding describes the project. Harding explains why this fencing installation is moving forward. Work to install fencing will involve overnight lane closures and alternating traffic over the bridge. The restriction will be in place from 8 pm to 6 am Sundays through Fridays starting this Monday and ending Friday, December 23rd. If necessary, work will resume Monday, December 26th and will continue until complete.
Starting this weekend, Prescott and Prescott Valley will be all lit up for the holidays. Tonight is Prescott Valley’s Festival of Lights. At 4:45 this afternoon, the Coyote Springs Choir will perform followed by the Bradshaw Mountain Middle School Choir. The Civic Center will be lit up just before 6 followed by the Night Light Parade. Mayor Harvey Skoog says the Festival of Lights is a popular holiday event. Santa Claus will be inside the Town Civic Center starting at 6:30. Over in Prescott, there are over 85 entries in the 34th annual Christmas Parade, which starts at 1 tomorrow afternoon in downtown Prescott.

During a live appearance on Wednesday’s Talk of the Town on KQNA, Margo Christiansen with Ponderosa Hotel Management Services explained what will be happening after the Parade.
