Northsight Boulevard Extension Project
The first phase of construction has been completed. This phase included utility relocations, the installation of a new 24-inch waterline, and the construction of the northern portion of Northsight Boulevard near Frank Lloyd Wright including the traffic signal at that intersection.
The second phase of construction on the Northsight Extension Project began in in mid July. This phase includes reconstruction of Northsight Boulevard from approximately 800 feet south of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard to approximately 450 feet north of Hayden Road. To accommodate this work, Northsight Boulevard is currently closed in this area. Phase 2 is expected to be completed in September. Once the road improvements are complete for Phase 2, this area will be reopened and work will move south on Northsight Boulevard. During Phase Two, periodic weekend work will be necessary. Access to businesses will be maintained at all times.
The final phase of construction work includes the completion of the reconstruction of Northsight from Hayden to Frank Lloyd Wright and the construction the the roundabout at Hayden Rd. and Northsight Blvd.
The City of Scottsdale’s Northsight Boulevard Extension Project is currently in design and includes extending Northsight Boulevard as a public street from Hayden Road to Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard.
This project is planned to help relieve one of the most congested intersections in Scottsdale – Hayden Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard – by providing travelers an efficient option to bypass the busy intersection. The project is one component of Scottsdale’s Airpark Area Circulation Study which seeks to improve mobility in and around the Airpark.
The project will include construction of a modern, multi-lane roundabout at the Northsight Boulevard/Hayden Road intersection and the signalization of the Northsight and Frank Lloyd Wright intersection.
Why a roundabout? Compared to other options, the roundabout improves safety, increases capacity, reduces delay, creates less disruption to existing buildings and businesses and is more sustainable.
