Mill Avenue between Rio Salado and University restricted June 1 to July 26

  • Date: -

Utility relocation work for Tempe Streetcar will begin June 1, with a phased schedule that minimizes the impacts of construction in downtown Tempe, particularly on Mill and Ash avenues between University Drive and Rio Salado Parkway. The phasing takes advantage of the summer months when schools are out, tourism is seasonally low and traffic is lighter.

June 1 to August 11, work occurs on Mill Avenue between Rio Salado Parkway and University Drive from 1 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday and Friday. North and southbound lanes remain open to vehicle traffic, with some left and right turn restrictions. Some sections of on-street parking and bicycle lanes may be temporarily restricted. After 10 a.m., a majority of the traffic restrictions are removed and steel plates are used to cover trenches, allowing regular traffic flow to resume.

The following bus services will be impacted between June 1 and July 26:
