Bell Road/US 60 Update: Grand Avenue traffic switch in place

Image
Two-way traffic now sharing new westbound US 60 lanes in work zone




SURPRISE – Grand Avenue (US 60) traffic has been switched to newly constructed westbound lanes at Bell Road in the latest milestone for an Arizona Department of Transportation project connecting the roadways with an overpass and interchange.
Crews worked overnight this week to move Grand Avenue traffic from the eastbound side of the road to the new westbound lanes between Dysart and Litchfield roads. Two-way traffic on Grand will share the westbound lanes while work advances on the Bell Road overpass and on improved eastbound US 60 lanes.
Now that the traffic switch is in place, access in and out of shopping center parking lots along Grand Avenue will occur via Towne Center Drive and Bell Grande Drive. Driveways being added in that stretch will open upon completion of the new eastbound Grand Avenue lanes.
Work to construct the deck of the Bell Road overpass is underway. All of the 89 concrete girders that are part of the b…

TODAY IS

Rodney Allen Rippey, the formerly cute kid from the Jack in the Box commercials, turns 48 today. I believe that was in the pre-blow-up-the-clown phase.

Country singer Martina McBride turns 50 today.
I'm sure there's a country song in there somewhere.
There are a lot of wanna-be's out there, but usually they turn out to be more like a McBridesmaid, than a McBride.
Before she was successful, she was always a McBridesmaid and never a McBride.

Patti Scialfa -- Mrs. Bruce Springsteen -- was born in the USA 60 years ago today. In other words, Happy Birthday, Boss of the Boss.

Documentary film maker Ken Burns hits number 63 today. I believe he'll celebrate it in 7-parts.

ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1030, the patron saint of Norway, King Olaf II, was killed in battle. He told one too many Ole and Lena joke and the troops just couldn't take it any more...

In 1492 that the very first almanac was printed and all things considered, it's in pretty good shape, although I should probably break down and buy a new one.

On this date in 1588, the English soundly defeated the Spanish Armada in the Battle of Gravelines. The battle began when the English asked "What's an Armada?" and the Spanish replied, "Nothing. What's an Armada with you?"

In 1858, the first commercial treaty between the U.S. and Japan was signed. Which was weird, since commercials hadn't been invented yet.

On this date in 1899 that the very first motorcycle race was held in Manhattan Beach, New York.
It would have been so much more exciting had there been two motorcycles.
It was also that day that they realized speed bumps do not make a good finish line.
