The Arizona Department of Transportation is starting a project to reconstruct and improve the US 60 (Grand Avenue) frontage road between Greenway and Thunderbird roads in El Mirage.
Drivers using the frontage road should plan on taking alternate routes while work is underway. The construction work will require the following closures and lane restrictions along the Grand Avenue frontage road starting Monday, Aug. 13:
The purpose of the work is to reconstruct and resurface the frontage road; add new curbs, gutters, signs and enhanced lighting; complete lane striping; and improve landscaping.
In addition, crews will add a section of decorative fencing along westbound Grand Avenue parallel to the BNSF Railway tracks and will improve the Acoma Drive connection to Grand Avenue.
ADOT is partnering with the city of El Mirage on the $4 million project. More information about the new frontage road improvements is available by visiting the project’s website.
The entire project is scheduled for completion by summer 2019.
Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors. For more information, please call the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or email Projects@azdot.gov.
