Winter 2017 Pavement Management Program
The Town's 2017 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:
- December 26-27: Chandler Heights Road at Ellsworth Road and Chandler Heights Road at 196th Street ~ Pavement will be added to the south side of Chandler Heights Road, west of Ellsworth Road, to add a dedicated right turn lane to alleviate backups during school drop-off and pick-up. This work is being conducted at this time to accommodate the school's winter break. Pavement will also be added to the north and south shoulders of Chandler Heights Road to allow striping for middle turn lanes at 196th Street.
- December 29-January 3: Queen Creek Road at 212th Street ~ Pavement will be added on Queen Creek Road to provide a dedicated right turn lane and allow for striping for a left turn lane on 212th Street. This work is also being conducted during this time to accommodate the school's winter break.
- January 15-18: Hunt Highway Shoulder Improvements ~ Six feet of asphalt pavement will be added to the north side of Hunt Highway from around Ellsworth to Sossaman to repair edge scallops and improve shoulder safety.
- March 12-16: Sonoqui Creek Ranch 2 ~ This subdivision is scheduled for a mill (removal) and replacement of asphalt. Additional information will be provided as that schedule is refined and residents in the neighborhood will receive mailers or door hangers in advance of the work taking place.
During these asphalt applications, roads will remain open for travel; however, traffic may be shifted away from the work activity or flaggers may be in place to assist travelers near the work zone. Thank you for your patience during this work.
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 paving activity and thank you for your patience during this process.
