Brentwood Manor and Tempe Royal Palms neighborhood street restrictions

  • Date: -

Rural Road between Alameda Drive and Southern Avenue AND Southern Avenue between Rural Road and College Avenue will be frequently restricted to two lanes in each direction and at times one lane in each direction daily from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  These restrictions are scheduled to occur between May 22 and  August 2017 in order to replace aging water infrastructure in the Brentwood Manor and Tempe Royal Palms neighborhoods.  There may be additional lane restrictions during other hours of the day on both weekdays and weekends.  During this time, the City plans to minimize disruptions to the traveling public and local businesses, especially at peak hours, mitigate cut-through traffic in neighborhoods, maintain access to neighborhoods and businesses, and to ensure the safety of both the traveling public and the construction crews.
