Road Construction & Traffic Restrictions

We strive to keep our roads and infrastructure well maintained. For those curious about the road construction or traffic restrictions in the city, you'll find all of the details about current projects.

From design plans and timelines to funding sources and who to contact for more information; we've got you covered.

Current Roadway Projects and Major Street Closures

The Alma School Road Design Concept Report was finalized in July 2019.  Three phases of improvements to Alma School Road are planned, as identified in the 10 Year Plan for City Capital Improvements.

Phase One improvements on Alma School Road from Pecos Road to the first median break south of Germann Road were completed in 2021.

Phase Two improvements on Alma School Road are from Germann to Queen Creek roads. Design is scheduled for Fiscal Years 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 and construction is scheduled for Fiscal Year 2025/26. There are currently no road closures or traffic restrictions associated with the project corridor.

Phase Three improvements on Alma School Road are from Chandler Boulevard to Pecos Road. This project is currently outside of the 10-Year CIP.

Information specifically about the Arizona Avenue Alternatives Analysis Study can be found online by visiting Valley Metro, or calling Victoria Bray at 602-490-8284.

The City is widening Chandler Heights Road to four lanes (two in each direction) between McQueen and Gilbert roads.  Construction began in fall 2022.

The City is planning to widen Chandler Heights Road between Gilbert Road and Val Vista Drive. The project is in the design phase currently. Construction is scheduled to start in 2024.

The project will widen the two-lane road to four lanes (two lanes in each direction) with raised medians, bike lanes, center turn lane, curb, gutter, sidewalk, street lighting and drainage improvements. A public meeting was held Nov. 14, 2018 to discuss the project and obtain community input.

A storm drain, water and sewer improvement project is underway in the Detroit Basin/Gazelle Meadows Park area. This project is jointly funded by the City of Chandler and the Flood Control District of Maricopa County. Engineering design and modeling began in spring 2022. 

Construction will begin in 2023. During construction, street excavation will be required to install large underground pipes.

This project consists of widening Lindsay Road, from approximately 600 feet north of Ocotillo Road to Hunt Highway, with four through lanes (two through lanes in the northbound and southbound directions), as a minor arterial standard with 55' on each side.

This project will complete the gaps of missing arterial roadway improvements between developed communities.  Improvements include new pavement, raised landscaped medians, bike lanes, center turn lane, curb, gutter, sidewalk, Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades, street lighting, drainage infrastructure, communication and traffic signal infrastructure, utility relocations, landscaping and fence restoration, and traffic signal upgrades and dual left turn lanes at intersection of Lindsay Road and Riggs Road.  The project includes drainage improvements such as retention basins and concrete scuppers to accommodate future drainage needs in the project area.  In addition, there will be improvements to traffic signals and the traffic signal interconnect, as well as new LED street lighting and conversion of overhead electrical SRP 12kV Overhead Power to underground.

The City of Chandler is conducting a 9-month study to evaluate the feasibility of upgrading existing bike lanes to protected bike lanes on arterials and collectors.

This project will analyze both existing and planned bike lanes on arterial and collector streets and determine which bike lanes could be converted to protected lanes without removing a vehicle lane or widening the roadway.

This final report will include:

  • protected bike lane design criteria,
  • determine the feasibility of converting existing and planned bike lanes to protected bike lanes in the City of Chandler, and
  • develop a prioritized list of locations for implementation.

For more information, visit Protected Bike Lane Feasibility Study.

The City of Chandler administers a Wastewater Sewer Assessment Program that evaluates, prioritizes, and makes needed repairs to sewer pipes and manholes within the City’s wastewater collection system. As part of this program, sewer pipe and six manholes in the vicinity of the intersection of Dobson Road and Chandler Boulevard, and in Dobson Road to just north of Galveston Street, were identified as needing rehabilitation or replacement.

  • Construction began May 2023.

The City of Chandler has contracted with B&F Contracting to rehabilitate the sewer pipeline in Price Rd, from south of Frye Rd to Elliot Rd. The “trenchless” technology of lining the sewer pipeline extends the life of the sewer pipeline and is less impactful and of shorter duration than removal and replacement.

Scheduled to begin Nov. 27, crews will install a sewer bypass pipe to be able to bypass wastewater flows from the existing sewer pipeline to nearby manholes for work to take place in the existing pipeline.

Scheduled for early January 2024, crews will begin the sewer rehab (pipelining) process in Price Rd.

The City of Chandler contracted with Achen-Gardner Construction to relocate existing Chandler utilities, such as water and sewer pipeline, in preparation for the future Salt River Project (SRP) 230 kV project to Intel. Work was completed in the proposed SRP easement in Alma School Road from Lake Drive south to Chandler Heights Road, and east in Chandler Heights Road to east of Arizona Avenue at the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) tracks. 

SRP is now conducting their work in the proposed SRP easement.
