Arizona Avenue Improvements, Frye Road to Pecos Road
Chandler’s New Front Door
Updated June 13, 2018
Crews are currently conducting primary work on the east side of Arizona Avenue, between Frye Road and Pecos Road, with traffic shifted to the west during this work. On-street parking is not permitted in this area to be able to accommodate two lanes of travel in each direction with a center turn lane during construction.
Crews are currently working on the east side of Arizona Avenue to locate existing utilities (pothole) with electric crews nearing completion over the next 2-3 weeks installing electric conduit and pole foundations for street lights. Grading crews are also working to prepare the subsurface of the area for concrete, and pouring of concrete, curb, gutter and driveways has begun. In cases where there is more than one driveway, work will be alternated so that one driveway remains open at all times. In cases where there is only one driveway to a business, this work will take place one-half of the driveway at a time to maintain access. Further coordination may take place with individual businesses to ensure access is available for staff and patrons.
Work began this week in Frye Road to install valves in various locations in preparation for upcoming waterline work. Currently scheduled for next week, crews will begin work to install water pipeline in Frye Road, beginning at Nebraska Street and moving east to Arizona Avenue. This work is taking place during the summer to minimize the impact to the school’s activities. Frye Road will remain open for travel; however, traffic will be shifted away from the work zone and turn restrictions may be in place. You will be notified in advance of any planned disruption to your water services.
Construction on the east side of Arizona Avenue is scheduled to take 3-4 months to complete, followed by median island installation in the center of the road and final paving. Project completion is scheduled for October 2018.
- Thank you for your patience during construction!

A public design kick-off meeting was held in November 2016 with interested businesses and residents to identify issues and opportunities for this segment of Arizona Avenue for the design team to consider during their analysis and design development for the corridor. In March 2017, a second public meeting was held once again with interested businesses and residents to view the revised design concept in consideration of the comments received at the design kick-off meeting.
