SR-303 to 99th Ave - Addition of new eastbound and westbound lanes TRAC # H686601
RTP Phase 1 Project Description The project added a third lane in each direction on 11 miles of US-60 (Grand Avenue). New turn lanes and improved traffic signals, signage, lighting, sidewalks and crosswalks were also part of the project. Also, three sound-mitigation walls were constructed on the south side of Grand Avenue between 99th and 111th avenues in Sun City.
Project Benefits Improved safety and reduced traffic congestion are the primary benefits of this project. Other benefits include reduced traffic noise in residential areas where sound walls were built and landscaped medians to enhance aesthetics along the route. The entire corridor was paved with rubberized asphalt to reduce traffic noise further and provide a smoother ride.
