CURRENT STAGE:  PHASE 1 - COMPLETE  /  PHASE 2 - CONSTRUCTION

 

 Riggs - Ellsworth to Meridian Roads

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project includes construction of the north half of a future six-lane roadway, bike lanes, sidewalks, signing, and striping.  Adjacent development activities are expected to construct the southern half street.

Phase 1 Improvements (Ellsworth to Crismon):  This phase of the project was managed by Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) and construction is complete.

Phase 2 Improvements (Crismon to Meridian):  The Town of Queen Creek is managing the design and construction of the improvements to this phase of the project.  Re-alignment of the Rittenhouse Road/Gary Road intersection and widening of the UPRR grade crossing will occur with the project.

CURRENT TRAFFIC IMPACT

Phase 1:  Riggs Road is now open from Ellsworth Road to the new realigned Rittenhouse Road/Gary Road intersection.

Phase 2:  Riggs Road is now open from Ellsworth Road to the new realigned Rittenhouse Road/Gary Road intersection.  Combs Road is closed between Rittenhouse Road/Gary Road intersection and Meridian Rd.  There will be no access to Combs Road at Rittenhouse Road until July 8, 2019.

STATUS UPDATE

Overall, the Phase 2 project is about 90% complete.  Improvements continue on the eastern end of the project limits, crossing the Union Pacific Railroad.  During the Combs Road closure, UPRR will widen the railroad tracks and relocate the signal gates.  On June 3, 2019, Riggs Road was open to allow east and west bound traffic from Ellsworth Road to the new realigned Rittenhouse Road intersection.  At this time, Combs Road is closed between Rittenhouse Road/Gary Road intersection and Meridian Road to widen the Union Pacific Railroad track pads, relocate the signal gates and to construct the remaining roadway improvements on the eastern end of the project limits. 

Construction is expected to be complete Summer 2019.
