Road Construction Projects
Updates on current roadway and related projects and major street closures in Chandler
Arizona Avenue Traffic Restrictions: Major lane restrictions will be in place along southbound Arizona Avenue between the Loop 202 Santan Freeway and Macaw Drive beginning Monday, Nov. 2 through January, 2016. The installation of a reclaimed water line in Arizona Avenue will require the southbound lanes of Arizona Avenue to be narrowed from three lanes to one lane between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Two lanes will be available all other times. A three-day restriction on northbound Arizona Avenue will occur north of Germann Road from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. in early 2016 for the installation of a lateral reclaimed line. Motorists are encouraged to use Alma School Road or McQueen Road to access the Santan Freeway. Traffic signal timing adjustments will be made and police officers will be on-site to assist with traffic control. More information, call Dara Griffith at 480-782-3314 or Paul Young at 480-782-3146.
Alma School/Chandler Blvd Improvement Project: The City is planning to improve traffic flow and safety at this intersection by adding dual left turn lanes, dedicated right turn lanes, and an auxiliary through lane in each direction. The project would also include new storm drains, curb, gutter, sidewalks, signals and landscaping. Construction is planned for early 2017 and more than 80 percent of the construction cost will be funded by a $5.5 million Highway Safety Improvement Program grant from the Federal Highway Administration. The Alma School/Chandler Boulevard intersection handles approximately 61,000 vehicles per day and had the fourth highest collision rate in the City in 2012. A 'before and after' crash analysis of seven similar intersection improvement projects in Chandler showed accidents decreased an average of 35 percent. For more information about the project, contact Hafiz Noor at 480-782-3324.
