McQueen Road Improvements
Chandler Heights to Riggs Road

What's New

Update for November 10, 2016

We’re Getting Even Closer to Completion!

Final Paving Scheduled—side streets are scheduled to be paved Friday, November 11, and McQueen Road is scheduled for early next week. The outside lanes will be paved first, then the inside lanes. Watch for changes in traffic control as we complete these final steps. Pavement striping will follow paving, and a couple of weeks later, the painted striping will be replaced with thermoplastic striping, which is widely used for its long life and durability compared to regular paint.

Permanent Signs, Landscaping and Irrigation—watch for work in the medians and on the road shoulders, where signs, vegetation, pavers, and rock are being installed.

Drainage Basin at Southeast Corner of McQueen and Chandler Heights— in the location where the contractor has been staging materials and equipment, watch as work commences on a new drainage basin. The basin will improve drainage during heavy rain events.

Walk Throughs After Thanksgiving—Various City of Chandler departments will walk through the project, and any remaining punch list items will be identified and addressed.
