Road Construction Projects
Updates on current roadway and related projects and major street closures in Chandler
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.

Hot In Place Repaving (March to May 2016)
Several sections of Alma School Road between Knox and Germann will be resurfaced using a special process called Hot-In-Place repaving. This fast moving process provides a cost effective means to rehabilitate worn pavements by re-using the old asphalt. The process mills up the existing pavement, recycles the material and lays it back down in one pass with a new layer of asphalt placed on top. For more information, call 480-782-3505.
