The Grand Avenue Frontage Road has been reduced to one lane, allowing traffic only in the westbound direction between Thunderbird Road and Santa Fe Lane. Drivers that normally use the Frontage Road in the eastbound direction should follow the detour along Greenway Road, Dysart Road and Thunderbird Road. Concrete barriers have also been placed along the north side of Grand Avenue to facilitate the construction of a fence. This project is anticipated to take 12 months to complete.
Butler Drive west of El Mirage Road and 125th Avenue between Alice Avenue and Butler Drive will be open only to local traffic to allow for utility and removal work. The reconstruction of Butler Drive is anticipated to be completed in mid-October.
The City of Surprise started the milling of Waddell Road/Thunderbird Road, west of Dysart Road. Lane restrictions are anticipated near the Thunderbird Road and Dysart Road intersection through September 21st. Delays are expected.
