The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow and safety. Work is occurring between Ray and Broadway roads and includes installation of the following:

  • detector stations, which detect vehicle movement and enable ADOT to determine traffic counts, traffic density and vehicle speeds and
  • conduit, fiber optic cables and other equipment.

Work on this $4 million project began in July 2017 and is scheduled for completion in November 2018.
