ACHD: State Street/VMP/36th Street Intersection

Welcome to Phase 3!


Traffic is now on the north side of State Street and the west side of Veterans Memorial Parkway and 36th Street. Work has begun on the south side of State and the east side of Veterans Memorial and 36th. This will be the traffic configuration for a majority of this phase.


Here is a reminder of what to expect during this phase: 
  • Some night work may be required for select construction activities. ACHD will work to provide as much advance notice as possible
  • Two lanes in each direction will be maintained on State during the peak travel hours but there may be lane restrictions in place outside the a.m./p.m. peak travel hours
  • Some work may be very noisy due to heavy equipment and backup alarms
  • Business access will remain open during construction 


Ongoing and Upcoming Work 

Utility companies have begun their work for this phase, the utility work is expected to last several weeks.
Suez is working on Lander Street from State Street to Garnet Street from July 26th to July 31st. This is not part of the ACHD project but you can learn more by visiting the Roadwork in the Area (RITA) website at https://t.e2ma.net/click/3cuum/v6bq7h/nkd6ke
There is also ongoing work on stormdrains and removals. Crews will be getting ready to start on excavation and placing of base materials by early August.
