GREENWAY PARKWAY to CLOSE during CONSTRUCTION MARCH 2014
Beginning March 2014, the City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department will begin construction on a new Greenway Parkway bridge over the Cave Creek Wash between 16th Drive/Beck Lane and 14th Avenue.
Approximately 28,000 cars cross the existing bridge each day. The bridge was built in 1988 and has undergone several repairs. A recent inspection revealed the bridge is structurally deficient and needs to be replaced.
The City reviewed two options for removing the original bridge and constructing a new one. One option was to remove half of the bridge, while shoring up the remaining half and shifting all traffic to the old bridge while building the new bridge which would take nine months. The other option is to close Greenway Parkway to all traffic for six months during construction. After reviewing each of the options with the local residents, businesses, churches, area schools, and the fire and police departments; the City has chosen to close Greenway Parkway.
Although an inconvenience to people who travel on Greenway Parkway, closing the street and not continuing to use the old bridge during construction was determined to be the safest option for the residents, pedestrians, traffic and the Hunter Contracting Company construction crew. This option will also save city taxpayers approximately $1 million and reduce the construction time by three months.Traffic will be detoured through the duration of the project and an extensive public information campaign will be implemented to keep the community informed of the construction status and any changes to the street closures and detours.

The City will do its best to minimize impacts to area residents, motorists and local businesses during construction. If you have any questions or concerns about the project, please call the hotline.
