What's New

Update for September 22, 2016

Driveway Reconstruction at E. Wood Dr., E. Elmwood Pl., and E. Evening Star Blvd. starts Saturday
Residents and guests in Rockwood Estates and Paseo Crossings, be aware and plan ahead: the contractor will start reconstruction of the the areas where these streets intersect with McQueen Road to update the sidewalk ramps in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

These areas will be built one-half at a time so vehicle access will be maintained, however, the sidewalk along the west side of McQueen will need to be closed during the operation, which is anticipated to take three to four weeks.

There also will be work in these side streets to install electrical conduit, so there will be extra crews and equipment in addition to the crews building the side street intersection areas.

Please drive safely through the construction zone and watch carefully for traffic control devices.

Traffic Switch Saturday Night
All traffic between Riggs Road and Chandler Heights will be traveling on the new lanes (east side of the road) starting Saturday night, if all goes according to schedule. There is some underground work on the west side, but not nearly as much, so work on the west side will go much quicker than the first phase.

Construction schedules, especially paving operations, are subject to change for a variety of reasons, including weather and asphalt availability. The City of Chandler and its contractors recognize the inconvenience of construction and we thank you for your patience and support!
