Plans are moving forward for a road that would run through the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Reservation to connect state highways 69 and 89. The Arizona Department of Transportation, the tribe, and Yavapai County have been working together on plans for the connector for several years. Chris Moss, a planner for the tribe, said the three groups are working on agreements that will set out the terms of the financing and the schedule for the new connector. John Supanich of the Kirkham Michael engineering firm said the connector would have seven lanes and include a new bridge across Granite Creek.
