The city of Avondale has hired Talis Construction to start construction on a new traffic signal to be installed at the intersection of Avondale Boulevard/Maricopa Street. Work is expected to begin July 29.
The project will include the installation of traffic signal poles, mast arms and other related equipment. New ADA ramps will also be installed at the intersection to meet current design standards and also connect fiber-optic communications so the new signal can communicate to the city’s traffic operations center. The fiber-optic line will also connect center’s communications to the existing traffic signal at Avondale and Coldwater Springs boulevards to facilitate smooth traffic flow on this busy arterial.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of September. During construction, the traveling public can expect occasional travel lane closures; motorists are advised to follow all traffic signs and detours.
The city budgeted $698,000 during this current fiscal year for this project, to include the design and construction. For more information, call 623-333-4200.
