Happy Valley Road: Pima Road to Alma School Road


Project Information

This project will widen Happy Valley Road to two through lanes in each direction with a landscaped median, curb and gutter, bike lanes, sidewalk and drainage improvements from Pima Road through the intersection of Alma School Road. The purpose of the proposed improvements is to improve capacity and operational efficiency.

The design will also include the improvement of the intersection of Happy Valley Road and Alma School Road to a multi­lane roundabout and evaluate the impacts and feasibility of a roundabout at the Happy Valley Road and Golf Course Drive intersection.

The widening of this segment of Pima Road is part of Scottsdale’s Transportation Master Plan. Funding for the project is currently part of the 5-year Capital Improvement Plan. The project budget is $9.9 Million and include the City of Scottsdale's Transportation 0.2% Sales Tax and Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Arterial Life Cycle Program (ALCP) funded by Proposition 400 regional transportation sales tax funds.
