Traffic on Queen Creek Road is scheduled to flip to the North on Friday, February 1st. If rain delays stripping activity, the switch will take place on Monday, February 4. Currently there is no rain in the forecast for Friday. Commuters please plan accordingly and be aware of the construction update when driving in that area.
Construction is estimated to be complete Early Spring 2019.
- Phase 5 (Jan-Feb) – Construct the west side of Ellsworth Road in the project area
- Phase 6 (Mar) – Work in the center of Ellsworth (half and half through the intersection) to install median islands
- Phase 7 (Early Spring 2019) – Final paving and striping of the intersection
In partnership with private development, work will concurrently be taking place on Ellsworth Road north of Queen Creek Road by private development to complete improvements to Ellsworth Road, ultimately providing three travel lanes in each direction with a center lane.
