Major safety project for Ironwood Road, between Germann Road to the Elliot alignment, to start April 2017 and last through January 2018.
During the construction, lane restrictions will be in place that will allow for at least one lane open to thru traffic in each direction for this five (5) mile segment of roadway.
Changeable message boards will be installed two weeks prior to the start of construction to physically notify motorists of this project and be removed when construction starts.
The scope of work consists of constructing an outside shoulder in both the North and South bound directions, construction of paved left and right turn lanes at existing access points along the corridor, embankment construction; shoulder widening, installing median cable barrier; and other related work as shown on the plans. Construction is estimated to be within the 6.6 to 7.3 Million dollar range financed by County Bonds and Highway User Fund Revenue.
Please drive with caution and be aware of all traffic signage and work crews. Plan for extra travel time and use alternative routes if at all possible to improve your daily commute as construction delays are anticipated. Your patience is appreciated as these necessary improvements to this major arterial connecting the Apache Junction / San Tan Valley / Queen Creek areas is completed.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
