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. These improvements are currently nearing completion of design and will shift the intersection slightly northward to improve traffic flow and movement. Improvements also include street, drainage, irrigation, waterline, sidewalk, landscape and traffic signal improvements from Walnut Road to Fulton Parkway and 1/8 mile east on Queen Creek Road.
Phase 1 construction is complete.
Phase 2 continues design coordination with affected utilities such as Queen Creek Irrigation District (QCID) and SRP. QCID pipeline design work is underway and SRP is in the process of designing relocation of their facilities. Necessary right-of-way and easement acquisition also continues. Roadway design completion from 90% review has resumed following SRP and QCID design progress.
