Traffic Restrictions

For the week of November 16th - November 22nd:
    • 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.  This set up will remain through mid-December.  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 full project is anticipated to be complete in Summer 2019.

    • Access from Dysart Road to both Sahuaro Drive and Desert Cove Road will be closed starting November 12th and will continue through December 3rd.  Drivers that wish to reach either street will have to access from 129th Avenue.
