Comment sought on Chandler Heights Road improvements

The City’s Transportation & Development Department is planning to widen Chandler Heights Road from two lanes to four lanes between Arizona Avenue and McQueen Road and seeks public input on the design.

An informational meeting will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 9, at Hamilton Branch Library (Program Room), 3700 S. Arizona Avenue.

The roadway improvements are tentatively scheduled for late next year and will begin west of Arizona Avenue at Sunland Drive and end just east of McQueen Road.
The majority of the funding for design and construction will come from federal Surface Transportation Program grants. The improvements will include the addition of raised medians, bike lanes, turn lanes, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, street lighting, traffic signals, storm drains, landscaping and irrigation.

Water, sewer and reclaimed water lines will be added or extended to undeveloped parcels and coordination with the Union Pacific Railroad will be needed to accommodate widening of the railroad crossing. Widening at the Consolidated Canal will need to be coordinated with Salt River Project.

For more information, call the project hotline at 480-898-4060.
