The Town of Queen Creek is currently designing and constructing improvements to several areas of Ellsworth Road, Rittenhouse Road, and Ocotillo Road. Improvements in these areas include the following . . .
Ellsworth Road – Ocotillo Road to Rittenhouse Road:
Construction was completed in December 2014. Design for this project was completed in 2010 and interim improvements conducted in 2012. Improvements, included road widening, bike lanes, sidewalks with enhanced pedestrian features and decorative street lights.
Ellsworth Road – Rittenhouse Road to Queen Creek Road (San Tan Historical Society):
This project is in the early stages of designing improvements to Ellsworth Road, from Rittenhouse Road to the San Tan Historical Society, to provide for safer, more efficient vehicular and pedestrian travel in this area.
Ellsworth Road and Queen Creek Intersection:
Improvements are currently being designed to the Ellsworth Road and Queen Creek Intersection to realign the intersection to improve safety and minimize the existing curve.
Ellsworth Road – Germann Road to Ryan Road:
The Town of Queen Creek is currently designing improvements to Ellsworth Road, from Germann Road to Ryan Road, to widen the west side of Ellsworth Road to accommodate a center turn lane. These improvements are necessary to provide for safer, more efficient travel in this area.
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.
This project consists of adding two additional traffic lanes, bike lanes and sidewalks across the Union Pacific Rail Road tracks on Ocotillo Road, just east of Ellsworth Road.
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.
Improvements are currently being designed 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.
Chandler Heights and Sossaman Road:
Improvements are currently being designed to widen the intersection of Chandler Heights Road and Sossaman Road to include right and left turn lanes. Design is expected to be completed in 2015.
A federally funded project, this project is currently in design and will provide an improved multi-use path along the Queen Creek Wash. During construction, we provide current project status through e-updates. To be added to our distribution.
