REVISION - Full Road Closure on McDowell Road This Weekend

(Goodyear, AZ) McDowell Rd. between Bullard Ave. and PebbleCreek Pkwy will be closed for construction for 41 hours throughout most of the weekend from 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10 until 11:00 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 11.

Eastbound traffic on McDowell Rd. will be detoured onto PebbleCreek Pkwy to either Indian School Rd. or Van Buren St.   Westbound traffic on McDowell Rd. will be detoured onto Bullard Ave. to either Indian School Rd. or Van Buren St.

Message boards have been in place since February 5th on McDowell Rd. and PebbleCreek Pkwy at the entrance to the PebbleCreek Resort Community to give early warning of these closures to area residents.

The purpose of the closure is to expedite the construction of nine sewer lines that need to be laid across McDowell Rd.  The City of Goodyear usually tries to avoid total road closures to disrupt traffic as little as possible. However, in this case, it was determined that a full road closure for two days on a weekend would speed up the sewer project by four weeks. This work needs to be finished as soon as possible so construction can begin on Phase One of the McDowell Rd. Improvement District. Phase One will widen a half mile of McDowell Road from PebbleCreek Pkwy east to service the future Estrella Falls Regional Mall.

Markham Contracting of Arizona is the contractor. Should you have any questions, please call City of Goodyear Project Manager Regis Reed at 623.882.7098 or 623.256.3600.
