The first phase of the sidewalk in-fill project begins on December 12 and will be completed by January 13, 2023. Work being done includes improvements on N Saguaro Blvd from N Tower Drive to the Big O Tires (south of E Rand Drive). The improvements include new curb, sidewalk, driveway replacements and asphalt placement. Please use alternative entrances. We apologize for any inconvenience this project may cause you during this time of street improvement.
As part of the Active Transportation Plan, with input by residents and adopted by Town Council in 2021, one of the Town's visions is for "Pedestrian Facilities: Improved/connected sidewalks (closing gaps), links to existing shared use paths, and accessible facilities." (See Active Transportation Plan)
Upcoming in 2023
In March 2022, the Town received a federal grant for a sidewalk infill project along Palisades Boulevard between Fountain Hills and Saguaro Blvd. and Saguaro Blvd. between Fountain Hills Blvd. to Colony Drive. The gap infill project includes the construction of a meandering 8-foot sidewalk, utility relocations, driveway improvements, roadway narrowing, pavement obliteration and restriping, retaining walls, landscape restoration, and sign relocation.
Last November, the Town and the Arizona Department of Transportation held an open house to share information about the sidewalk infill project along Palisades Boulevard.
