Pinal County continues road work in San Tan Valley

Drivers traveling through San Tan Valley over the new few weeks can expect delays due to road work under way by Pinal County. Public works officials ask the public to drive cautiously when traveling through these areas.

Utility work was scheduled to begin today on Hunt Highway from Mountain Vista Boulevard to Stone Creek Drive, according to the county’s website. The work is expected to last a few days and will include a speed reduction and a lane closure for eastbound travel.

Utility improvement work also is to start today on Gantzel Road near Pecan Creek Drive intersection, according to the website.  Work may last a week and is expected to include a speed reduction and a lane closure for southbound travel.

There is a temporary road closure for access to Gantzel Road on Rebecca Lane due to construction work, which was to begin Feb. 29 and is expected to continue through March 14. Residents will need to use Tourmaline Drive off Bella Vista Road in order to access lots off of Rebecca Lane.

Roadway improvement work is taking place on Gantzel Road near the Hash Knife Draw Road intersection (south of Combs Road) throughout the first week of March. Work may include a speed reduction and a lane closure for both directions of travel during daytime hours.

North of San Tan Valley, work continues for another month on a safety pullout project on Ironwood Drive between Elliot and Baseline roads in Pinal County. The Arizona Department of Transportation is administering the project on behalf of the city of Apache Junction.

The installation of six safety pullouts is intended to provide refuge for broken down vehicles and emergency and enforcement pull-offs outside of travel lanes. This project also includes new pavement marking, signing, guardrail and other related work. It should be completed by the end of March, according to the website.
