McQueen Road improvements to be discussed

Improvements to McQueen Road in south Chandler will be the subject of a public meeting to be held at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 29, at Chandler’s Hamilton Branch Library, 3700 S. Arizona Avenue. Construction is about to begin on the final leg of McQueen Road to be improved in south Chandler; the two-lane segment between Chandler Heights and Riggs Road. The roadway is bordered on the west by the Paseo Crossings and Rockwood Estates neighborhoods and on the east primarily by unincorporated areas. The City has been widening McQueen south of the Santan Freeway over the past decade. The upcoming project will take approximately $4 million and eight months to complete and will widen the roadway to four lanes, plus bike lanes, turn lanes, landscaped medians, street lighting, storm drains, curb, gutter, sidewalks and the extension of underground water, sewer and reclaimed water lines. Grey Mountain Construction, LLC, was awarded the construction contract, of which $3 million comes from a federal grant. Traffic volumes on the current roadway average 8,300 vehicles per weekday at the southern end and increase to 28,000 vehicles daily at the point where McQueen reaches the Loop 202 Santan Freeway.
