The project will widen Ocotillo Road, from Gilbert Road to 148th Street, to four lanes (two through lanes in each direction), with raised medians, bike lanes, center turn lane, curb, gutter, sidewalk, street lighting, drainage improvements and utility relocations for the project.
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 electricity to underground.
The project is receiving federal funds for design, and a combination of federal and local funding for land acquisition and construction; therefore, environmental, right-of-way and utility clearances are being coordinated with ADOT/FHWA.
Construction is currently scheduled to begin in September 2021, and expected to take approximately 6-7 months to complete.
If you’d like to receive updates during construction or have questions regarding the project, please contact us.
