Pedestrian crosswalk signal planned for Gavilan Peak Parkway
Staff Report~ 8/6/2014
ANTHEM – Construction beings next week on a pedestrian crosswalk signal at the intersection of Gavilan Peak Parkway and Venture Drive.
On Monday, Aug. 11, the Maricopa County Department of Transportation will start work on the new signal. The intersection will be getting some updates, as well, including new signage and striping at the crosswalk. The improvements are estimated to be finished by the end of September. Work hours will be Monday –Friday, 5 a.m.-5 p.m., with possible weekend work as needed.
MCDOT has noted that lanes will likely be restricted at various times during the construction. No entrances to businesses or homes will be blocked. Drivers should plan for minor traffic delays in the construction zone.
As this intersection is across from one of the entrances to the Anthem Community Park, multiple people cross it every day. The new crosswalk signal is designed to help pedestrians cross the street safely.
