Scottsdale Road Improvements Jomax Road to Dixileta Drive
The City of Scottsdale is beginning to design a series of improvements to a two-mile segment of Scottsdale Road from Jomax Road to Dixileta Drive, including intersections. The proposed improvements will include landscaped medians, bike lanes, sidewalks and trails to improve safety, capacity and accessibility for motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians and will include multiple drainage crossings beneath the pavement. This project will include the evaluation of a potential multilane roundabout at the intersection of Dynamite Boulevard. If feasible, final design of the roundabout will be included.
The project team is currently conducting an assessment of the area and performing survey work between July 29 and Aug. 14. In general activity will be in the public right of way but at times on private property in order to determine the exact location of walls, grade breaks, washes, etc. All data collection on private property will occur with hand held instruments and no disruptive activity should take place. In addition to using the hand held equipment, the project team will also be installing aerial survey panels (big white “X” on ground with a rebar in the middle) through the corridor and then flying over the project site to map the panels and get updated topographical information. If you see a panel in your community, please do not remove it. All panels will be removed after the survey flight has occurred.
On May 19, 2020 the City entered into an agreement with Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) for funding of design and construction for the majority of these improvements. On July, 1 2020, the City Council approved an Engineering Services Contract with Ritoch-Powell and Associates, Inc. to provide preliminary assessments, complete design and construction documents.
Design of the project is expected to take 12 months and include roadway design, utility coordination, development of right-of-way maps and legal descriptions, a detailed offsite drainage analysis, landscaping and irrigation plans, cost estimates, development of construction phasing and construction documents. Coordination with stakeholders and public involvement opportunities will take place throughout the design and construction process. Construction is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2021.
