Estimated Project Cost: 4.6 million


Ocotillo Road remains open for travel, one lane in each direction, during construction.  Ocotillo Road, east of Ellsworth Road, is shifted to the south side of Ocotillo Road, with left turns currently restricted between Ellsworth Road and Heritage Loop Road.

The base course (bottom layer) of asphalt has been applied to the south side of Ellsworth Road, and work is currently taking place to reconstruct curb, gutter, driveways and asphalt pavement on the north side of Ocotillo Road.  Work is also currently taking place on the northwest corner of Ellsworth Road and Ocotillo Road to construct the pocket park.   

During construction, traffic is shifted away from the work activity. Reduced speeds may be in effect and construction barricades will be in place, so please drive with caution through the construction activity.  While driving through construction can be challenging, please continue to visit the businesses in and near the construction area.
