Pinal County Public Works is completing improvements to Pima Road, including a connection to Queen Creek Road at Meridian Road.

Phase III of the Hunt Hwy expansion will be complete by close of business Friday, February 10th.  While there will still be some work to do in regards to landscape and median pavers near Wal-Mart which will require some traffic control and intermittent lane closures, the cones for the expansion itself will be removed.

The current phase of Hunt Hwy Construction is wrapping up and we wanted to provide a little more detail about how the final stretch will impact your travel.
Development related road work will take place on Gary Rd. near Empire Blvd., beginning on January 16th. The construction will include lane closures for both directions of travel.
Ellsworth Road will be closed south of Ocotillo from Friday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. to Monday, Jan. 30 at 5 a.m. There will be no access to Ocotillo Road from the south at Ellsworth Road during the closure; Ocotillo Road will remain open. The closure will allow for the removal of asphalt and pave the base. Completing the two pieces with a full closure instead of a flagging operation increases efficiency, safety and stability.
