Current Activities

View the weekly construction photos and additional information on the project website.

Work continues Monday through Saturday to:

  • Eastbound Grand Avenue CLOSED nightly 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday (Aug. 1) and Tuesday (Aug. 2) for bridge work on the west side of Grand Avenue.
  • Existing eastbound Grand Avenue roadway pavement removed for reconstruction.
  • Construct the retaining wall panels of the bridge over Grand Avenue.
  • Continue to build the bridge deck over Grand Avenue.

**City, County, and State law enforcement will be patrolling the area. Please obey all traffic signage and posted speed limits.**

The Grand Avenue/Bell Road Interchange Project is using the design-build contracting method, which provides flexibility while the contractor’s designers work side-by-side with the construction team to deliver an improved connection between the two roadways. The project is scheduled to be completed over the next 14 months (in spring 2017).

In order to reduce the project’s length and lessen the overall impacts of construction, ADOT has worked with the city of Surprise and local businesses to schedule a full closure of Bell Road near Grand Avenue. The full closure will allow Bell Road to be reconstructed as an overpass traveling over Grand Avenue and the parallel railroad tracks, providing a significant improvement for traffic flow.
