Raintree Drive Extension


Project Information

The Raintree Drive Extension will provide a direct connection between the State Route Loop  101 Freeway and Scottsdale Road. This extension will simplify the route from Hayden Road to Scottsdale Road and help to relieve some of the traffic congestion currently experienced on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard.

MapThe City of Scottsdale has prepared a Design Concept Report for this segment of roadway which will included recommendations regarding number of travel lanes, raised medians, major intersections (roundabout, traffic signal or side street stop control), minor side street lane configurations, safety considerations, driveway access, landscape and streetscape concepts, public art, drainage improvements, and right of way needs.  

The Scottsdale Airpark is a major employment center within Scottsdale, and the network of roadways, circulation and access is critical to the businesses and industry of the Airpark. The City of Scottsdale has completed several studies to address some of the transportation and access issues currently hindering drivers. The Raintree Drive Extension project is one component of Scottsdale's Airpark Area Circulation Study which seeks to improve mobility in and around the Airpark.

The Raintree Drive Extension was included in the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), funded by Proposition 400 regional transportation sales tax funds.

Current Traffic Restrictions

Raintree road closures May 2023

Project Update: May 2023

Construction continues for Scottsdale’s Raintree Drive Extension Project with traffic reduced to one southbound lane on 78th Way and 76th Place (westbound only on Acoma Drive between 78th Way and 76th Place). In addition, Hayden Road traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction with no access to/from Raintree Drive. 

Landscape crews continue work installing irrigation sleeving and landscaping along 76th Place, Acoma, 78th Way, and Raintree Drive west of Hayden Road.

Scheduled to take place Sunday night, May 21, Hayden Road traffic will be shifted to the east side of Hayden Road onto the new asphalt pavement, still one lane in each direction, for work to begin on the west side of the future Hayden/Raintree roundabout. As part of this shift, access from Hayden Road to and from Raintree Drive will be restored on the EAST SIDE OF HAYDEN ROAD ONLY, with right-in, right-out movements permitted. Left turns will continue to be restricted at the intersection. Please note that while this shift on Hayden Road will continue to accommodate one lane in each direction, it will have a slight curve through the intersection as travelers will be driving on the east side of the future Hayden/Raintree roundabout, so please drive with caution.

Raintree road closures May 2023

Scheduled for the week of May 22, crews will begin removals of concrete and asphalt on the west side of Hayden Road at Raintree Drive for work to begin on the west side of the roundabout. Following this work, beginning the week of May 30, electric crews will install conduit for streetlights and ITS at the roundabout, and then begin installation of storm drain.

Business access is being maintained during this work.  Thank you for your patience during construction.
