CURRENT STATUS: PHASE 1 - COMPLETE / PHASE 2 - CONSTRUCTION
Phase 2 anticipated start date: Late February 2018
Phase 2 anticipated completion date: November 2018
This project has been separated into two phases to accommodate the completion of construction during the school's summer break.
Phase 1 consisted of improvements to Old Ellsworth Road from just north of the UPRR tracks to just south of Queen Creek Road. Improvements included street, drainage, sidewalk, landscape, street light and waterline improvements for construction of a cul-de-sac turnaround near the school/museum and realigning Walnut Road (Ellsworth Loop north connector) to provide for safer travel movements in the area.
Phase 2 consists of the realignment and softening of the Ellsworth Loop/Ellsworth Road curve at the Queen Creek Road intersection to improve traffic flow and movement. Improvements also include street, drainage, irrigation, waterline, sidewalk, landscape and traffic signal improvements from Walnut Road to Ryan Road and 1/8 mile east on Queen Creek Road. Ellsworth will be widened to three lanes in each direction from Walnut to Ryan.
Phase 1 construction is complete.
Phase 2 construction is scheduled to begin in mid February 2018, with initial work taking place off the roadway to work on traffic signals and placing temporary pavement on the shoulder to accommodate the traffic through the intersection during construction. More information will be provided as the schedule and sequencing details are finalized. Construction is estimated to be complete November 2018.
