Starting Thursday, Aug. 8, San Tan Valley drivers can expect traffic delays on Pecan Creek Drive due to a manhole-rehabilitation project by the Pinal County Public Works Department.

The project will include lane restrictions as well as speed reductions in the areas depicted on the map above, according to a release.

Families attending Ellsworth Elementary and Combs Middle School will be impacted by the delays, particularly during high-volume times such as school arrival and dismissal.

The project is anticipated to last through Aug. 12, and motorists are encouraged to plan for extra travel time due to traffic delays.
