The Town of Queen Creek is currently designing and constructing improvements to various areas of Queen Creek for its residents. Improvements include those described on this page.
Queen Creek Transportation Master Plan
The Town of Queen Creek hosted an open house in February 2016 to share information with the community about existing transportation conditions and seek resident input on future transportation needs. The event took place at Queen Creek Town Hall, in the Founders Room, 22350 S. Ellsworth Road. The Town is in the early stages of developing a Transportation Master Plan, and resident input is crucial to the success of the plan. Attendees had the opportunity to help shape Queen Creek’s future as it relates to transportation, providing information regarding vehicular travel, bicycle facilities, pedestrian facilities, and public transit. The open house format allows residents to come and go as they please during the hour and a half timeframe. If you were unable to attend, please take a brief survey regarding transportation in Queen Creek by clicking this link. Thank you for your time!
This project is currently in detailed design and will include reconstruction of the intersection at Ocotillo Road and Ellsworth Road, a new traffic signal at the intersection of Ocotillo Road and Heritage Loop Road, widening the road to four lanes with a center turn lane, bike lanes, and sidewalks.
Improvements are currently being constructed for Ocotillo Road, from Power Road to Recker Road, and will consist of a new two lane roadway in this area. Work currently taking place in this area is not related to this project, but part of the private development off-site improvement requirements.
Ellsworth Road and Queen Creek Intersection
Improvements to the Ellsworth Road/Queen Creek Road Intersection, which will include improvements to Ellsworth Road at the north connector, will improve the transition from the Ellsworth Loop to Ellsworth Road at the Queen Creek Road intersection. The project is currently being designed, and construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2016. Click here for project rendering from the August open house.
Ocotillo Road – Crismon Rd to 218th Place
Improvements to Ocotillo Road, from Crismon Road to 218th Place, are currently being designed. Full improvements include two travel lanes in each direction and a center turn lane, street lighting, bike lanes, and sidewalk. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2016.

Ellsworth Road Improvements, Germann to Ryan:
The Town of Queen Creek has contracted with Hunter Contracting to construct improvements to widen the west side of Ellsworth Road to accommodate a center turn lane to provide for safer, more efficient travel in this area. Work is currently taking place on the west side of Ellsworth Road, off the roadway. During this work, Ellsworth Road will remain two lanes in each direction; however, there may be periodic, short-term restrictions when necessary to complete the construction activity. But, every effort will be made to limit the duration and extent of any restrictions on Ellsworth Road.
Chandler Heights Rd/Sossaman Rd Intersection Improvements:
The Town of Queen Creek has contracted with MR Tanner to construct improvements to the Chandler Heights Road/Sossaman Road intersection to provide for safer, more efficient vehicular and pedestrian travel in this area.
