Pavement Preservation Program:
The Town of Queen Creek’s Pavement Preservation is being postponed until Spring 2016 for the remaining residential streets that were scheduled, but not completed to date. This application is best conducted during Fall or Spring since it requires temperatures of 55 degrees and rising for the required two coats to have time to cure (typically 8-10 hours in warm temperatures). The recent rains and cooler temperatures which are expected to continue, have resulted in impacts to the schedule that would create additional days of road closure to achieve the desired quality. To minimize the impact to residents, roads scheduled for pavement preservation, but not completed, will be rescheduled in the Spring. Residents will be notified in advance, once again, as that schedule becomes available.
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.
Construction has begun to widen Rittenhouse Road from the existing two lanes to a five lane major arterial roadway. Improvements will also include street lights, bike lanes, sidewalk and landscaping. A public meeting was held on September 11, 2013 for the project.
Improvements are currently being designed 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.
The Town of Queen Creek has completed design of the Queen Creek Wash Multi-Use Path, a federally funded project, which will provide an improved multi-use path along the Queen Creek Wash, from Desert Mountain Park to the Chandler Heights Road alignment, a critical link in the Town’s trail system. A public meeting was held March 6, 2014 to provide information to interested residents and property owners related to the project.
Chandler Heights Road/Sossaman Road Improvements Project:
The Town of Queen Creek is currently designing improvements to widen the Chandler Heights/Sossaman intersection to add left and right turn lanes where necessary. These improvements are necessary to provide for safer, more efficient travel in this area. Click here for a project rendering.
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.
Ellsworth Road – Germann Road to Ryan Road:
Construction is scheduled to begin soon as design nears completion for the Ellsworth Road, Germann to Ryan, improvements project. These improvements to widen the west side of Ellsworth Road to accommodate a center turn lane are necessary to provide for safer, more efficient travel in this area.
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.
