2017-2018 Pavement Management Program
The Town's 2017-2018 pavement management program includes various pavement applications or asphalt mill (removal) and overlay in various locations. Residents in the service area directly affected by work will typically receive information via a direct mail postcard/flyer prior to work taking place. However, notifications for work on arterial roadways is typically conducted through on-street signage. The Town has contracted with MR Tanner Companies to install asphalt in various roads along the shoulder to provide for better turning movements or relieve congestion. The following roadways are scheduled:
- March 19-23: Sonoqui Creek Ranch 2 ~ This subdivision is scheduled for a mill (removal) and replacement of asphalt. Roads will remain open for travel. Work will take place on half the street at time.
The Town has also contracted with Holbrook Asphalt to conduct the pavement preservation treatment (HA5 surface application) for streets in various residential neighborhoods in Queen Creek. Pavement preservation significantly extends the life of asphalt roadways. Due to the nature of this work and to prevent damage to the new surface and residential driveways, streets designated for pavement preservation treatment will typically be CLOSED for travel for 14 hours while work takes place. In instances where there are no alternate routes, the application may take place 1/2 the street at a time. The closing of roads for this work in each area has been sequenced to minimize the distance to residences from where vehicles may be parked. The following information and frequently asked questions are provided related to this work:
During ROAD CLOSURES, the road will not be available for travel for any purposes. If access to vehicles is needed during the 14-hour period of the road closure, please plan ahead by parking vehicles outside of the area designated as closed.
Provided below are current scheduled dates for HA5 surface application. Please use the GIS map below to locate the date for your specific street. Residents will also receive mailers or door hangers in advance of the work taking place.
- March 15 & 19 Via de Arboles ~ Between Hawes Road and 197th Place
- March 15 - 29 ~ Sossaman Estates Community
- March 26 - April 2 ~ Villagio Community

Please read through any information you may receive if you live in one of the scheduled areas as the schedule and requirements may vary.
SPRINKLERS MUST BE TURNED OFF – Water may damage the installation of the surface treatment. Please do not have sprinklers set to come on 24 hours before the road closure, during the road closure, or 24 hours after the road closure. Damage due to sprinklers will be the homeowner’s responsibility.
What if my car is parked on a road that is closed? Roads will be closed at 6:00 AM and the streets being treated will be closed for approximately 14 hours. A tow truck will be on-call for vehicles parked on the streets scheduled to be treated that day. Towing expenses will be the owner’s responsibility.
What if I drive on the road while it is closed? Vehicles that travel in the closed area will be liable for any damage to their vehicle and to the area of road where travel occurred.
What about emergency services? In the event of a life threatening emergency, emergency vehicles will not be stopped from driving on the treated surface.
IF WEATHER CAUSES A HALT TO THE PROJECT, THE STREET MAY BE REQUIRED TO BE CLOSED ANOTHER DAY. ROADS THAT CANNOT BE TREATED ON THE SCHEDULED DAY WILL FALL TO THE END OF THE SCHEDULE AND RESIDENTS WILL BE RE-NOTIFIED BY DOOR HANGER.
Please drive with caution and obey traffic signage and construction personnel (flaggers) when driving near the paving activity. These measures are in place for the safety of the work crews, nearby pedestrians, residents and businesses, and travelers. Please allow for extra travel time during this work and thank you for your patience.
